When the water is flowing this is one of the best kayak and IK floats in the entire state of Utah.  It may not be big water with Class III to IV holes and waves but the scenery and experience is incomparable.  When the chute cuts through the reef you are floating between sheer sandstone walls.  Keep an eye out for possible wood hazards but for the most part this is a great class II cruiser. Weather on the river today will be sunny, with a high near 86. south wind 8 to 14 mph.

This run is accessible from 2 public boat access points along the Muddy Creek.

Season Begins: May & Ends: June
