Muddy Creek - The Chute - Tomsich Butte to Hidden Splender

Utah-US  

Description

When the water is flowing this is one of the best kayak and IK floats in the entire state of Utah.  It may not be big water with Class III to IV holes and waves but the scenery and experience is incomparable.  When the chute cuts through the reef you are floating between sheer sandstone walls.  Keep an eye out for possible wood hazards but for the most part this is a great class II cruiser.

If you take your friends interested in getting into kayaking on this run when the CFS is up you will get them hooked and have paddling partners for life.
