Ssv - Confluence To Picnic Grounds
READ THIS FIRST: SSV was heavily impacted by the Colorado floods of 2013. The entire riverbed was rearranged in many sections. The banks are very unstable in some sections, and rapids are expected to shift as the water levels come back up. Scout carefully and often! 2016 update: Most people are running the section from the narrows through 1 in 5 as it's currently the cleanest and least hazard free. The main section as it's described in the Rapids section has been largely damaged and is full of hazards and marginal lines.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Saint Vrain, South Fork are between a bare minimum of 200cfs and a high of 400cfs.
