Sixth water always flows, its getting to it that is the issue. The snow will be too deep unless you have snowmobiles to drag boats in from the Strawberry Res side. After the snow melts, the dirt roads turn into slippery baby poop until they dry out.

Dude as of now Malad is your best bet. I got reamed last time for saying this, but sixth water isn't really worth it. It is a super low flow creek, and a novelty at best. If you want a good time, and it is still running Malad at 1200 cfs is the ticket right now. Drive 3 1/2 hours to Tuttle, Id, and hook up with awesome people from Twin Falls. Run a ton of laps, hit Jack and the Box, and come back. Here is a video of that run if you have not seen it yet. http://vimeo.com/35867992 if it is running next week I may hit it up.

No 'reaming' intended to FSM but 6th water is fun, when you have the right group and make it a good time. Not really worth the effort (hiking out at the takeout) to do a bunch, but its fun and everyone should at least do it once..

not worth checking out right now. road conditions and all. are you looking for some steep falls? 6th water is a fun run in the summer or fall when roads are dried out. if you're looking for some step falls this time of year in utah, 6th water isn't it.

Backpacked to the springs up there and we had to start the hike 4plus miles for the normal trail head. Access to sixth water will be a very very long day. Loads of snow up there right now....
