Sevier River - Leamington Canyon (Hwy 132 to Leamington)

Utah-US  

Description

This is a quasi-interesting run if you are in the area.  This run is mostly class I and II with a few diversion dams and a class III here or there.  For the most part it is a good beginner kayak run.  All of the obstacles like the diversion dams can be portaged.  Here you mainly need to be watchful of barb-wire fences and livestock.

At lower flows you will scrape bottom and higher flows will make it pushier and more appropriate for intermediate boaters.
