Sevier River - Marysvale Canyon

Utah-US  

Description

This canyon is probably the best run on the entire Sevier River.  Highway 89 runs parallel to the river so many options exist here to make runs shorter or longer.  The section from Big Rock Candy Mountain area down contains the best whitewater.  There is even a local outfitter here who provides runs in the summer.

The hardest rapid is about a mile or so downriver from Big Rock Candy Mountain.  At high water some claim this becomes class IV.  Most of the time it's a solid class III.
