Muddy Creek




Didn't mean to hit this twice this year, but it just sort of happened. No gnar, but another breathtaking Ut run. Definitely worth hitting up. Left me wondering how I hadn't done this previously.

Here's some info from my recent trip down the Muddy 6/20-22; approx 300 cfs

Put in right at exit 99 off of I-70. Try to find a put-in south of the highway to avoid lots of nasty fences and wood. There was a car just south of the highway on river left. I'm not sure how it got there, but looked like a much better put-in. There's nothing at that exit - just your typical Ranch exit in the middle of nowhere so if you just try all the roads, you're bound to find someway to get there. If not, just add a little time and hassle to do 3-4 portages.

We did from I-70 to Hidden Splendor in 3 pretty big days. Lone Tree Crossing is another possible put-in but looks like a long drive to get there. Cuts off 11 miles of the run (but I would still do 3 days).

Good camping right where the river enters the Wilderness Study area (see the Nat'l Geographic San Rafael Swell topo map). I would recommend trying to camp in this area on the first night and in the Chute on the 2nd night. Or do 3 nights.

Some gnats at the camps in the few miles before Tomisch Butte. Annoying, but they don't bite. LOTS of biting deer flies at the camps around Tomisch Butte and for a few miles after. Also, it rained the day or 2 before we got there so maybe not so bad if it hasn't rained in a while.

Very fun trip! Good to be in the UT desert. Good solitude before Tomisch Butte.

Just a quick question? What kind of camcorder gear were you using?

Haa. Alright. Maybe I should watch the whole video next time. (Olympus Digital Camera) Duh. Thanks.
