The section you want is the Chutes....It's in the San Rafeal Swell. Take I-70 West past Green River, UT..Continue Westbound on I-70 past Hwy 24 and through Spotted Wolf Canyon....after entering the San Rafeal Reef (an unmistakable geologic uplift /formation) Take the Ranch Exit in about 10 miles & turn left heading South....follow the signs to Tomsitch Butte/Hondoo Arch (your put in)....take out at Hidden Splendor Mine. You won't be dissapointed unless it's below 150cfs.....and then it's like taking your boat for a very scenic hike.

Boxes

The Black boxes have been running and are sweet. Super pretty, good whitewater, and alittle flat water. All in All one of the best runs in Utah. Some wood has shifted through the canyon alittle with the higher flows that we have had this season and one of the drops you basicly have to run blind. I ran it twice this season Once as a overnighter, once as a 1 day strike mission, both were fun. Let me know if you need more beta.

I agree w/ r2d2....the black box's rarely have enough water....so when there is ample water, you have no good excuse not to go. I waited 9 years to run them my first time back in 1995. I highly recommend them. Set your shuttle & put in early in the AM..it's a long day.

I highly recommend the Chute of Muddy Creek, this weekend (4th) should be it for a good run. Check the gauge at Emery, if its above 300cfs you should be good to go. I ran it twice this year, both times the Emery gauge said 400cfs, but lots of water is taken out above I-70 for irrigation.

Class I-II, some technical manuevering, but nothing serious. The best low-key float I've ever done...15 miles of surreal beauty. Do it!
