Rapid Descriptions

FM 205 Bridge

Class - N/A Mile - 5.03
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

Reference point

NOTE: Texas Whitewater describes a low-water crossing downstream from the bridge that created a river-wide hydraulic at moderate to high flows.  Apparently the crossing is no longer there.


U.S. 67 Bridge

Class - N/A Mile - 7.39
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

Access situation unknown (beta needed)

Low-Head Dam

Class - N/A Mile - 9.04
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

Texas Whitewater describes as "grabby at times" and suggests running far left to avoid the hole.

SH 144 / Elm St Bridge

Class - N/A Mile - 9.08
Rapid Thumbnail Missing

Access/parking available in the public park at river right on the downstream side of the bridge.

NOTE:  Texas Whitewater suggests Big Rock Park as a takeout in order to score one more surf wave, but a new dam built there since the book was written is likely to have eliminated the wave (current beta needed.)  The play spots immediately below the SH 144 bridge can all be accessed within the boundaries of the park.

Jason Robertson

The Comal County Commissioner's Court is taking measures that will restrict access to the Guadalupe River indefinitely. AW's primary objective on the Guadalupe is to restore access as soon as possible and to make sure that boater access does not impede on-going rescue and recovery efforts.
