Beta for private boaters in the Wilderness: 500 cfs (that is as low as I would run a 14? gear boat) we recommend running from the one day take out at Hoodoo (10 river miles below the bridge, 7 by road) because the river is more channelized from that point on. 12? and smaller rafts, IK’s and kayaks can run the Wilderness stretch to 200 cfs. With an uphill 1 mile hike one can take out at Horseshoe bend just past Cherry Creek and eliminate the 15 miles of flat water to Hwy 288.
