Bear (Black Canyon) question?

Post by Pedro on Sat 07 Jul 2012, 4:04 pm

Does anyone know how the black canyon is at 300-400ish? I see that the gauge has been in the 400 range and was wondering if it's worth the drive. Thanks for any info.

Search on Mountainbuzz.com there was some talk of it last year. Sounded like it was good to go, just technical in spots.

one thing that occurs to me is that if Grace Falls is good to go, could be worth some laps on that. Its more or less park and play (at least its possible to hike in and out at Grace Falls i think).

Thanks for the info. I may try a mid-week trip if the flows hold.

Here is a video I shot from the bridge above Grace Falls, and it shows the rise of the water level as the gates were opened. This will probably help give you an idea of what it looks like at low flow, and the difference.
