The West Fork of the Blacks Fork River in Utah is a scenic and challenging run for experienced paddlers. The river features numerous class IV and V rapids, including the notorious "Death Trap" and "No Name" rapids. The best time to run this section of river is in the late spring or early summer, when water levels are typically around 500-1000 cfs. However, the flow can vary greatly depending on snowmelt and rainfall. Paddlers should be prepared for steep drops, tight turns, and powerful hydraulics. This is not a run for beginners or those without strong whitewater skills.
