CLASS I-II     6 miles
  The Guard station off US 150 to Hewinta Guard Station section of Blacks Fork - East Fork in Summit County is 6 miles long and has been rated as a class I-II section by American Whitewater. The starting point is not too far from Evanston, as you can see on the road map further down. The nature scenery of Utah and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are reasons enough to come here and paddle. Getting a good workout
    and just being out on the river for a while will make you glad you came. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Whitewater paddling here in
the Uinta Mountains is a great experience. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more forgiving, so better not forget that quite a few of the sections in this state are pretty easy. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a pretty small number of paddling places. This section is long enough to enjoy a good non  
stop paddle, you can easily run it on an afternoon. The Guard station off US 150 to Hewinta Guard Station section is one of a few paddling sections in this river system.

Briefly about the general area:
Blacks Fork - East Fork is right by the High Line Trail; sites like Ashley National Forest are perfect to pop by. You'll truly wish for more hours in a day to enjoy all the entertaining things in the Uinta Mountains. The Bear River Smiths Fork Trail offers hiking at its best, and you're sure to encounter some smiling people from Robertson here. At this river you will never have a bad time.
