San Rafael River Time

Looking for beta on running the San Rafael in the Swell. I know it's about 17 miles of something like class .8, but looks to be a cool canyon overnighter. What's the best time to run and anybody know of the popularity of the campground at the takeout?

I think you're talking about the Little Grand Canyon. No rapids but beautiful scenery. Its a great overnight or day trip. Take a canoe. You want approximately 300 CFS but can run it a little lower.

San Raf

Thanks for the flow info. I was talking about the Little Grand. I'll keep a close eye on it.

It's been a few years since I've been on the that stretch and it is a great over-niter. Virgin springs is a grood place to explore if you decide on a layover. For what it's worth I go into The Swell often and the campground at the take out is full of the ATV/generator all night crowd.
