South Fork, Fifield to County Highway F - 12 miles, 5 hours
The first half of this paddle has a meandering character - the second half has some challenging whitewater
Put in at the Highway
70 bridge in Fifield. Two miles downstream from Fifield, you’ll
pass the Highway 13 bridge, another place that makes a great put-in.
The river is calm for the next 3 miles until you reach Simons
Rapids, a relatively easy set of rapids. Just 2 1/2 miles later
is Boars Rapids, a more challenging set of rapids. About a mile
downstream of Boars Rapids is Rock Ledge Rapids, which is also
exciting. Rocky Carry, a very challenging set of rapids, is another
mile downstream. Paddle carefully. Take out at the County Highway
F bridge about a mile downriver.
