Park And Ride To Old Mill Catch Pond


As the creek exits Big Cottonwood Canyon there is a short rompy run.  Start at the park and ride at the mouth of the canyon and run the creek to the catch pond below the Old Mill.  This has a short season runoff when the snow melts in the spring.  As a runoff it is fast and rocky.  Don't expect a lot of eddies.  If you go for a swim it will be a rough one. Wear appropriate clothing as the water is from snowmelt.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Big Cottonwood Creek are between a bare minimum of 150cfs and a high of 700cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 10163000, the Provo River At Provo Remember only watercraft are permitted at Park and Ride to Old Mill Catch Pond.
