Saint Vrain, South Fork - SSV - Confluence to Picnic Grounds

Broken Knee

Rapid Details

Name Broken Knee
Class V

After a long stretch of boogie water from the confluence put-in, there is a large slow moving pool.  This is also the put-in for the shorter, classic SSV put-in.  This rapid starts below the pool.  Navigate a couple small entrance holes, dodge the mank, and set yourself up to drive center and right for the last flume.  This rapid usually goes smoothly but carnage can be epic.  See the accident report for how this rapid got its name.
