American Fork, Utah, US
01. Lower AF
||IV+ (for normal flows)
American Fork is a small steep creek that wasn't paddled much until fairly recently.
Its narrow, fast, tight, twisty, and challenging, with few eddies; but by comparison, its more
feasible than most of LCC or BCC. Full bank scouting is suggested, on the day you plan to run
it;look under the bridges too. The narrow runoff window makes this creek hard to catch
The canyon has a lot of wood, reminicent of Unitas creeks. A spike in the river level can
completely change the wood situation.
The lower 1.8 miles or so has been done the most, from above the UP&L station to the mouth of
the canyon. Wood jams may dictate the best putin. The whole canyon has been run from Tibble
reservoir down, and Tibble fork above the reservoir has been paddled a bit as well.
