Upper Boxelder Canyon
Boxelder canyon is an early season run near Casper, WY. Not far off the highway, the canyon is characterized by a pool drop creeking character. The upper canyon is around 2 miles long, but the rapids are fairly stacked once they start. The rapids range from class IV to V with some significant gradient. The quality of the run is somewhat marred by its short length and unpleasant hike out. The hike requires climbing out a gully with lots of loose rock and dirt making it difficult to find good footing in parts and potentially dangerous for those below subject to rock fall.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Boxelder Creek are between a bare minimum of 120cfs and a high of 600cfs.
