There's a good turnout to park out but it's kind of non-descript and looks exactly like all the others in the stretch. I seem to get out of my car 4 time before I find it and I've been there at least a dozen times. Once you are out of the car it's like 2 min to hike in and take a look. Sure looks like it goes at low water.

Sorry not a lot to go on...

It's the pull off upstream of the end avalanche area sign and upstream of a big river right avalanche path. Better over 50 cfs. But No Fun Falls on Bear Creek near 100 cfs is a better park and huck than Coors at it's current level.

Deepstroke, are you doing any laps on no fun today? I was thinking about maybe getting a run in today if nothing else for the novelty of it but probably onlyb before 5 or so. I have an 8 week old baby so trying to multitask today given haven't gotten mothers day gift yet.

Also, just put the baby down so for Coors Falls. I haven't ran it but pulled off road one time with west fork at 130. That looked like a good min but looked like you could scrape down at about 100. I would think from 130 to 200 would be good class 3-4 with calass 4 consequences. The only thing that could keep you from going mch higher than that is that it feeds into another more difficult rapid and I am not sure at what flow the eddy after the second falls would be harder to catch or exit options if you do run the next rapid. Very pretty though.

I got my fill of No Fun laps Thursday, so, I'm good. As far as Coors is concerned, the ledge drop below it gets stompy and has a mean looking hole at higher flows.
