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.
