Hello!

Can anyone please advise if the river in Boulder Canyon has calmed down and can be waded or even rock hopped easily at the sport park?

Thanks!

If you walk downstream about 100 ft there is a Tyrolean.

Super doable. It goes to slightly above knees when wading.

Thank you Eric! Had no idea as I always waded. Is that different then the line I used to see years ago that people held when wading?

The hand line is no longer there at the usual shallow crossing. The tyrolean is downstream about 150 feet, somewhat hidden in the trees. Either way the creek flow is sufficiently low at the moment to wade below the knee.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
