Anyone have any feedback on recent conditions of the water level? I was thinking of hiking up through the Narrows, but not sure if it would take too long. I know AW had some issues a while back, I'll have to look at up as well.

Anybody know how the East Fork river is running right now? I want to take my kids up to Bridge to Nowhere, but I want to avoid treacherous water conditions. Thinking of going up next weekend.

Great thanks. I remember that a backpacker was swept away this time last year, however 2011 was a much wetter winter than this one was. Just making sure before I make the drive with the kiddos.

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone has been up the East Fork recently?  What is the river flow like?  Will it be possible to do the river crossings safely or is the flow too high now?  I belong to a group that is planning to do the hike this Saturday and I was wondering if it will be safe to make those crossings now.  We've had a lot of rain recently and I remember needing to use ropes for some people to cross back in 2010 when we had a lot of rain.

Its forecasted to rain on Friday. On the flipside, BungeeAmerica is advertising as if there is no caution needed...come on over everybody.

Idea endorsed by a meetup too with 33 people in one group on the way..

That's actually the group I was referring to!  Weather.com is showing a chance of showers on Saturday morning as well.  That whole hike is basically in a flood plain so if there is a chance of rain there is no way I would be down there.  If it is a warm storm there will be more snow melt mixed in as well.

Bottom of a canyon within 12 or so hours after a good soaker? Seems legit*.

* extreme sarcasm intended. About one of the least "legit" places to be in that timeframe. The bridge and the hike aren't going anywhere, do it another time.

Several times we have had to rescue people belonging to a Bungee America party who were simply left behind several miles in when they couldn't keep up. That guy is a major ****.
