The Staircase section of the Logan River in Utah is a popular river run for experienced kayakers and rafters. The section runs from the 2nd Dam to 1st Dam, and features several challenging river obstacles such as Class IV rapids, steep drops, and tight turns.

The best time to float this section of water is in the late spring or early summer when the water levels are high, with recommended cfs of 400-800. Caution should be taken during periods of high water as the rapids can become dangerous.
