River Description

One of the more scenic rivers in northern Utah, class II - III- with some wood avoidance, ~9 miles. Beautiful. Ideal for inflatables and light weight kayaks. Two mandatory portages. Several runnable drops. Ideal level 600 cfs, runnable down to ~450, 1000+ cfs is scary.  

Access is an issue.  Although unsigned, there is a DNR river access through the Aspen Acres (Shoshone Rd) green gate.  Park in the large dirt pull out on the north side of the road and hike down to the river.  This launch is just above where Smith and Morehouse enters and increases the size of the Weber. The New Lane Rd takeout is just downstream from a dam that diverts ~3/4 of the river into a canal.

Can't say I'd recommend putting in at Aspen Acres anymore. There are six fences, two that are naked
barb wire nearly invisible from above, between AA and Smith and Morehouse. Yet none after SM so put
in at SM for this mid section of the upper Weber. Enjoy the new WW park too!

A small group of packrafters floated this on 5/18/16. I counted 6 barbed wire fences across the
river during this float. You can see their locations on the gps trace here if you zoom to the
closest level: https://www.strava.com/activities/580765927 Hope this helps others... g

Currently 1 barbed wire fence down between Aspen Acres put in and the NSF campground take out.
Bridge portage at RR ranch area. River in good shape.
