Salt, Arizona, US
01.5. US 60 to Mescal Rapid (Day Run)
||III-IV (for normal flows)
Before you go to launch, you need to purchase a permit, per person, at www.wmaoutdoors.org/buy_permits_ (It is possible to
buy permits on site, if you're willing to chance there being paperwork available). It is $25,
per person. You must carry the permit with you. The Apache Tribe has Rangers posted who spot
check for them.
It is against tribal law to run the class IV(V) Apache Falls that is just upstream from the
Highway 60 bridge. There is a road up to it on river right--take the dirt road on the downstream
of the highway bridge and then look for the underpass. You can legally put in on the rock shelf
immediately below the falls, and putting in here avoids the narrow raft-infested launch point
that most folks use.
The whitewater is mostly open bouncy class III with long pools separating.
