Verde River - Lower Verde

Rapid Details

Name low head dam
Class II- to II

There is an easy low head dam about 1 mile below the put in at Riverside Campground.  This is an easy obstacle to surmount, however it is a riverwide line of recirculating water, so plowing into it unaware could cause issues.  There's also a strainer on the left side of the rapid. 


Scout on river right.  You'll hear the rapid before you see it.
