River Description

A small, technical, deep, and beautiful canyon in Capitol Reef National Park.

This run is remote, and is commonly choked with debris, making this an all-day expedition. Once in the canyon, no easy exit is available and rescues by multi-agency teams are required for those who run into trouble. Although paddlers have done this run, Park Service personnel have determined that the upper Fremont is not a runnable stream.
