Pumphouse

First time down Pumphouse this weekend in a raft, looking for a 3-4 hour float. Any recommendations if I should take out at Radium, Yarmony Bridge, etc?

3-4 hours means Rancho.

I'm also planning to hit Pumphouse up on Saturday, probably just go to Radium as I will have my 4 yr old with me. I think it's about 2.5-3hrs there. I plan on stopping a few times and hopefully the hot springs will be exposed.

We went from Pumphouse to Rancho last Sunday--took 3.5 hours. We passed Radium in 45 minutes to an hour.

Hi, I'm not sure about your skills, but really think the float to Rancho is the way to go. At this level Yarmony isn't anything all that challenging. Go left or right. We used to take our 2 year-old down it without hesitation. Have fun!

Took my 4 year old threw today to Rancho never an issue! Do not run right at Yarmony! Only run Yarmony left at this flow. Hot springs rock are showing but cold right now, give it a week or two it will warm up with drop in flow. Have fun!
