Maytag to Parkdale Sun. 8-10

Myself and group of paddlers are going to run the lower Bighorn Canyon on the Arkansas tomorrow. We are planning to put in at the Maytag fishing access just above Maytag rapid and run down to Parkdale. This will be a relatively long class III stretch running Maytag, Three Forks, Three Rocks, Five Points, Spikebuck, and Shark's Tooth rapids (plus a few others). The plan is to meet at Parkdale at 10:30 am. Anyone interested in coming along is welcome - bring your roll, or at least float bags...

Logan-Would love to join you guys if the offer is still good. I'm not familiar with that stretch of river but I've got a decent river roll and I'm pretty comfortable in Class 3. How does it compare to Browns (which I've done before)? If it's much harder than that, I'll probably pass.

Let me know.

Thanks, Steve C.

10:30 tomorrow

I think the difficulty is very comparable to Brown's, but it is a different type of Class III. Brown's is more pool drop, with larger drops, but bigger calm pools between. Parkdale is more continuous and rocky, but has less "big" drops. It is lots of fun and if you enjoyed Brown's you should have a good time. I will be in an 88 blue Jeep Cherokee - hopefully we will see you there.

Hey lmyers,
I'm planning on seeing you at Parkdale at 10:30. I had the same question about comparing this run to Brown's. Thanks for answering my question.

Thanks, sounds like a blast. Unfortunately I'm not going to be able to make the drive down from Evergreen.

I'll be following the threads and will join you in the future.

Have fun.

Steve C
