Lower Gunny

Other Runs

Coming Soon!

Hello and thank you for checking in with us as we work on our first big expansion since we launched in 2019. Over the next several months we will be rebuilding our entire website, adding webpages to complement our new printed maps as well as adding a few other new features. We plan to have the new expansion finished by March 31st, 2021, just in time for the spring runoff.

We are excited for this new expansion! We will be adding over 30 new printed maps to our catalog, adding coverage on three more rivers. We are working on rivers by drainage, making printed maps for every run Class I to IV while providing information on our website for all the class V and higher. For more information on our 2021 expansion click here.

We will be publishing as we go so feel free to look in from time to time and check the progress. Just know that any page that is still under construction will likely have broken links and missing information. When we feel a page is finished this message will disappear from the page, and everything should be working.

We hope you enjoy what we are adding and the changes we’re making.

Kannah Creek Hike in Option

Class: V/V+ with mandatory portage

Who: Those seeking type II fun that boarders on type III

Length: Hike in-possibly up to 8 miles (more likely 1 or 2 miles)

Season: Spring Runoff

Gauge: visual

During the Snow melt there is a class V/V+ hike in run above the old upper run that may still be an option for the more adventurous. Head up to the Kannah Creek trailhead and hike up as far as you dare then run back to your car. The word is that the run is just one long class V rapid with micro to nonexistent eddies and it likely needs a good flossing, mandatory portages are likely. There is a trail that heads up the creek about 8 miles up to Carson Lake. If you get up there and the creek is a bust, you could always enjoy a nice semi strenuous 16 mile out and back hike up to the lake.

Quote from CRC2

“When you make it to the take-out bridge you will feel good…and maybe lucky. If you feel more good than lucky, run up and do it again!” They were speaking of the old upper run but from what I hear it can be applied to the hike in option as well.

Old Upper and Lower Kannah Creek

The word on the street is that the old Kannah Creek runs from CRC2, both upper and lower, are pretty much dead, for now. The general thought is that they were being run during a time when more snow was falling on The Mesa on average and this made for a more runnable creek. More irrigation rights and less average snow fall have led to the creek not really running at all and more barbwire and fencing has shown up making it pretty much impassible. Both sections run through private property so scouting without permission could lead to trespassing charges. While these runs may be dormant, they are not forgotten and an eye should be kept to see if they could be feasible again someday. A few years in a row of good snow fall and a few conversations with the land owners could see boats on these sections of creek again.
