Breck Play park

Just wanted some feedback on breck's play park....I'm heading up there tomorrow afternoon and checked the cfs...119 is medium?? Is it a really small river and if so can I take a wavesport siren in there without smashing some rocks? Also, if anyone is going to be up there tmrw afternoon let me know if you want to boat.

Lauren, I've never played in Breck's park, but I've driven by there many times on my way to the Lower Blue; it looks like a really sad play park. If you can get someone else to go with you, I think you'd get more/better play if you were able to hit the Lower Blue. It's maybe an extra 20 minute drive from there.

Yea, Brecks park is lame. At low water there is not enough water and at high water the features just blow you out. It has been years since I have been in there but I assume it has not changed. So, no, you can not take a pool toy in there without smashing rocks!

903cfs in the Blue below Dillon (Upper Blue), will be much better fun and decent surfing on the Maui wave with a good eddie on both sides.

The lower blue at 1630 is good too, but I would rather do the upper with Boulder canyon if I was you.

Check out the Frisco play feature by the kayak shop at the west exit/entrance for I-70. I've never been on it but it looks like it could be decent at the right flows. Call the kayak shop for info.

Both the breck play park and the frisco wave are completely done. I tried to get something out of the frisco wave yesterday but it wasn't worth getting wet for.

The breck park can be good when you've only got an hour and are in town or are training beginners but even then the levels need to be >150, preferreably >190. Those levels are only maybe a week per year.

Breck has a Whitewater Park just so they can be cool like the other Mountain Towns. It SUCKS!

Don't waste your time with Breck......go to Frisco's hole far end of Frisco Main Street. Stop in and say hello to Matti at Ten Mile Creek Kayak across the street.
