unfortunately no, but then again it is desperation time. You can look at the Eldo gauge for the post damn stream flow. I have run it down to 75 cfs and that required some wheel-chairing.

I have heard - not that I would do this myself, but people do boat down to the dam & then carry their boats out on the private property down to the park.

Last year or 2 years ago with similar flows there was at least one encounter with an enraged homeowner who did not appreciate kayakers walking on his piece of the private road.

I had no idea that road was private. Maybe that guy could spend 50 cents at Home Depot for a sign and put it on the upstream side of his property. He could put it along that PUBLIC looking road that the water department uses to maintain the dam. That guy probably didn't stop to think that from the upstream side, at a public utility...a 30 ft. dam... the road looks public.

That dumbass probably never thought of people coming from UP the hill. Kind of like the masturbators, hobos, etc. along the riverbank who you paddle up on suddenly. They always look so shocked that someone actually floats down that thing.

Hence the name NNR Rapid on Boulder Creek. Hehe, I'm guessing Only 5 or 6 people in Colorado will know what NNR stands for...

Way doable, at 62 cfs. you will lose some plastic, but You can float out of there low. I personally did it at 38cfs once. Just think of it as part of the shuttle, not part of the run.

317 above is a decent level for most of the drops.
