Ogden River - Lower Ogden

Utah-US  

Description

This run picks up where the 'Rainbow Gardens' section stops, with the friendly Lorin Farr wave. To summarize- sporadic plop and drop rapids for the first half, last half is 'jungle boating'. At least 1 portage(if you're running the whole thing), up to 4 portages at certain higher flows. Starts with a triple drop at the second foot bridge- where left line is friendliest, then down to Crystals Wal-Mart Wave for a fun beginner surf. If continuing on, the jungle boating starts here, then under a potential gnarly railroad bridge then down to the Car Hole, where you'll drop while eddying right(scout first if you've never seen it, or just go with someone who has) a permanent log jam after, where high flows sneak left, low flows is portage. Major jungle boating from the portage to the Weeber River confluence, where you float flat water to the take out.
