Verde, Arizona, US
|Usual Difficulty||I-II (for normal flows)|
This stretch is pretty, and is a good senic/beginners float. To start at the dam, you have to
bushwack through alot of reeds, and right after you get through the brush, river-center there is
a one-shot, green, steep, wave that you can throw air-blunts on. Its flat from there on out and
then there is a hole during the middle of the run. You can drive along the river-right hand side
of the river, but it is a major off-road trail, and TONS of sand. So if you've got a tight truck,
you might be able to park and play there, otherwise don't bother. The hole/spillover comes in
over 1000cfs. AZ ELF Boaters, get out there if you can because it is probably the best, and
closest thing you've got!
Note: Large runnable slide / fall on Horseshoe Dam was just run. Dubbed "Grace of God Dam". See here: HUCKIN HUGE
