San Rafael River - Black Boxes

Utah-US  

Description

This is a run on the San Rafael through an incredible seciton of the San Rafael Swell.  At lower levels this becomes an interesting and challenging hike through the stream bed.  At higher levels this becomes a meca for kayakers who want an adventure and can handle class IV and V runs.

This run consists of 2 main sections.  The first black box and the second black box.  Each black box section is where the river carves through the reef in a narrow/tight canyon.

This run only peaks at runoff in the spring.  No snow that year...no running this in a hardshell.
