Brazos, US 290 to SH 159
Author Last Post

I will be leading a trip on the Brazos on September 9 from US 290 to SH 159. This trip is a bit under 15 miles, as opposed to the previously planned roughly 30 mile run.


This segment has no real hazards, other than a demolished railroad bridge at mile 1.8. There are a few riffles and sweeping turns, but no real rapids. The put in is moderate and the take out is a bit tough.


This is a pretty reasonable run for folks who have been interested in trying the Brazos but have been concerned about the distances.
