whitewater kayaking on the ogden river - class iii and or class iv - July 23, 2022

Come join us for a fun day of boating just one hour from downtown Salt Lake City. This dam release run provides a cool and shady respite from the hot days of summer. Dates are variable, dependent upon water flow. Participants need to preregister and provide their River Resume prior to trip. We will "Go when there is flow" on a Saturday or Sunday probably in the last few weeks of July. Those participants that feel uncomfortable running the 2 mile Class IV section can easily shuttle around it and rejoin the rest of the group. Craft suitable for this run are: kayaks, IK's with thigh straps or packrafts. Helmet, throw bag, spare paddle, gloves, eye protection and sturdy river shoes are required. Plan on an all-day activity to end at approximately 9 PM. Post trip cuisine and libations will be held at a riverside brewery. Directions to the meeting location are as follows: From Salt Lake City proceed north on I-15 to Ogden Utah. Exit at 12th Street and proceed eastward to the mouth of the canyon. Just before the mouth of the canyon take a right (south) into the Rainbow Gardens parking lot. We will be meeting in the extreme southwest corner of the large parking lot at the Rainbow Trailhead. Indicate commitment by calling Chris at 801-776-1031 to sign up for this local run.
