Walnut Creek Trail Conditions

Recommended Posts

Hard to imagine 9' of water roaring by root drop.


Wells branch behind my house went from 2-4” by 2’ wide to 6’ by 20 yds wide after that rain. It all ends up in Walnut Creek. It was back to only 1’ deep by daylight. That’s a lot of water and that’s after it perks thru detention ponds in my ‘hood. A lot of the older upstream neighborhoods along walnut just have storm drains that don’t slow the flow rate. That creek can rage.

The huge rocks used for stepping stones can form a  nice standing wave at certain water levels.

There's always a debris line on the shore after a big flush.  Interesting to check out after a big rain event.

I don't think WC got as much in this last round of storms.

Conditions on Sunday afternoon were primo: tacky and grippy.
