New Hazardous river crossing from hikers?

The new bridge was built below the second Z gorge on the West Fork of the Clear Creek. They killed a healthy tree and created this river-wide hazard. They left a rope attached as a handrail.

The trail probably crosses the river and they know they can't wade through the river.

People can't imagine anyone running the river.

This bridge creates a new trail. Scouting the Z Gorges from river right is now an option. It looks real stout at 740cfs. The Upper West Fork above Woods Creek has a sweet slot drop that is in at this flow yesterday 7-10-11.
