River Description


This is a great multi-day river trip that is often overlooked but can be worth checking out in the spring. In some years flows last through Memorial Day weekend. Look for something above 1500cfs for rafts but it’s still a good kayak self support trip at lower flows. At moderate flows (1500-10000) the run is class II with half a dozen class III rapids.
 
This 50 mile trip is typically run over 3 to 5 days with some nice sandy beaches that make for good camping and plenty of opportunities for hiking and exploration up side canyons.
