South Platte River, North Fork - Bailey Canyon


Rapid Details

Name Trashcan
Class IV- to IV

Not long after Supermax, the river becomes a bit steeper again, marking the start of Trashcan.  A couple of large rocks split the channel in half.  Most people prefer to take the less rocky, but slightly more technical far left line, making a 90 degree turn at the bottom of the rapid back into the main flow.  However, all the lines go here, just make sure to keep the cockpit right side up.  

Stay heads up for the Speedtrap eddy 100 yards after Trashcan.  The sharp eddyline punishes boaters with a poor roll.
