  2. Boulder Creek Takeout Greenhouse

    Whitewater Kayaking
    I got a warning for parking at the greenhouse yesterday. I think I have been parking there sixteen years anyway. It stated "parking out of designated space". Do they mean for us to only park in the small lot or do I need to find another takeout? Kind of crazy they are patrolling the lot so...

    Anyone have an eye on Barker? The source is showing a good diurnal pattern.... We had peak flow 5/25 in 2014, looks like similar weather pattern for the next couple of weeks. Who's ready to paddle once we get up to 300?

  14. Wooden Swing in River - Boulder Creek

    River Access & Safety Alerts!
    Someone hung a thick wooden swing just downstream of the bike path bridge in Scott Carpenter Park. It's perfectly positioned dead center above the main current, and given the sweepers and creek width is very difficult to avoid on a raft. If/when your raft hits it, it will swing and potentially...

  16. Boulder creek wood-elephant buttress

    River Access & Safety Alerts!
    There is wood in the main line after the entrance drop of elephant buttress-you can get around it on the right but it would suck if you were off line. I think we can get it out if the creek is below 150 cfs. Ran it at 250 and it would be very sketchy to get too the wood at that level or above...
  17. Boulder Creek Flow

    Boaters Forum | General Boating Topics
    Just walked over the Broadway Bridge and it looks like Boulder Creek is getting there. I just went to look at the gauges and it appears that "Boulder Creek Near Orodell" no longer exists. This has been my go-to gauge since the 2013 flood with my notes saying >425 CFS on that gauge was good for...
