Chukar Trail Road Conditions

Anyone been down the road lately? Has it been raining much down there this week? Anyone planning on putting on Saturday morning? We have a 4Runner and would love to share a shuttle if your car's up for the road.

Anyone planning to use Larry's mules? He has a $400 minimum this year, but I can't get a hold of him to even see if he has any other reservations for Saturday morning or Friday evening.

FWIW, they're saying they'll start releasing on the 22nd or 23rd, and when they've made similar statements in the past they haven't been as punctual or literal as you'd expect. Sometimes late by many days.

That, and it can take 6+hours for the pulse to travel from Crystal Dam into the GG.

So to say, I'm not sure I'd make any plans for Friday, unless you're OK with 500cfs in the GG.

Chukar road is dry and in good condition -- rutted, rocky and rough, but passable to high clearance vehicles.

Ran the gorge from Chukar on Friday, May 23. Road is okay, someone came through when it was very wet and beat it up a bit, but certainly passable in a 4 runner. Trail itself is in good shape, no problems or surprises. Lots of new debris on river right at several points from side canyon waterfalls that will probably get moved around in high flows.
