Tapeats Rapid

How to run Tapeats

For those hiking the Thunder River Loop, they get an outstanding view of Tapeats Rapid. This is a long, splashy rapid that features large holes center and left. A standard run is splitting these holes, which can be done pretty easily. Another option is to run right of the center hole, but pay attention to not go too far right as there is a troublesome hole bottom right.
