Paddle the Mad River from Eastwood Park to Whitewater Warehouse

I know this is last minute, but with the recent rain, I think the Mad River should be runnable. I am going to go out and do Eastwood park to Whitewater Warehouse around 4pm tomorrow. If no one else can make it. I will just do my usual thing and drop the kayak off and run back up to Eastwood from Whitewater Warehouse.

This stretch includes the play area feature at Eastwood and a couple of easy rapids. Fun section of river.

    I am going either way. I was going to make a decision on the spot at Eastwood. I am nervous about the water levels.
    I am going to go to Whitewater ware house first at 4:45. I plan to be at Eastwood at 5pm. So people could meet up there if they want. My cell phone is[masked]

    Sylvia, will you be making a decision and posting it here in time for us to get there or not depending upon your call or will you be making a riverside decision and paddling either way, river or lagoon ? I checked the play feature about 1:00 and the right side was very runnable but definitely up.
    Thanks.

    River levels are now very high, mad river is running at more than twice the normal discharge rate thanks to all the rain. Might be dangerous out there. We could cancel or meet at the lagoon at Eastwood, for a more tranquil paddle. I will keep watching the river gauge rates, but I do not think the are going to get much better over the next few hours.

    Sylvia, I'm just in a 10 ft and am not very experienced. Will I be able to keep up with you? Plus, I will really have to see if I can duck work early to come out. I've never driven that far with my kayak on top of my car.

      I'm not going to be able to make it and I'm so disappointed ! Hope you have a good time. Sorry I requested a time change when now I can't even come. This rain should be helping the water levels!

    I would love to come but can't at 4:00. I could at 445 though. I wrote 'yes' because I didn't know if I could post a comment if I wrote 'no'. Any chance it would suit you a little later?
