Keepin it alive for ya till somebody who has been there in the last day or so chimes in...

... haven't been down there in over month, but my rule of thumb when I had a DD 350 was anything over 10.5' on the gage at 520 and I would go for it. There is 10.7' now so my guess is you will be fine.

There was water in the back trail last Friday all the way to Turtle camp. I found out that if the first part of the trail has water when you leave Flourence then it is good the rest of the way.

Dont be fooled by that I have seen it wet from florence to up past the little pond by the split,Then dry rest of the way. I know becaus I ran it dry the whole way with 2 passingers on board.
