Sixth Water


The only reason this run exists today is because of the Wasatch Front.  Societies insatiable need for water caused the Strawberry tunnel to pipe water here for roughly 4 miles.  This then drains down sixth water into Diamond Fork creek and ultimately west towards the Wasatch Front.  Otherwise the bulk of water seen here would flow east to the Green River (via the Strawberry River) and become California and Nevada's water.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Sixth Water Creek are between a bare minimum of 35cfs and a high of 100cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 10149000, the Sixth Water Cr Ab Syar Tunnel Remember only watercraft are permitted at Sixth Water.
