Apple Valley

Has anyone run Apple Valley on the South Saint Vrain lately? Any trees or obstructions?

I think of Apple valley as being a stretch on the North Saint Vrain, from the arched wood bridge, back in to town.

All pretty clear as of last week. There are several sweeper type trees, that are easy to avoid and probably wouldn't get you if you floated right through most of them.

The hardest move is 200 yards below the put in, where the current goes to the right and through some rooster rocks. Everything else is swift class 2. The biggest drops are the ones right in Meadow park.

Riley(7) loved this run in his fun 1. Of course the water is cold...
