What's it like

The Cow Wave in Henefer, Utah doesn't appear until the levels coming out of Echo reservoir reach 1000 CFS.

Cow Wave, Utah

The last time it appeared several years ago, there was an unfortunate accident involving a surfer tying his board to the bridge just above the wave. It is a very even, smooth wave; not very steep but spinnable with the right finesse. There is a barbed wire fence section just below the wave that can be a hazard and the area is completely flanked by sheep stockyards which make the water quality poor.

Cow Wave, Utah

Route description

To get there, you can either follow this handy map, or you can follow my directions from Salt Lake City: Go East on I-80 to the I-84 intersection, then turn northwest (toward Ogden) following the river from the bottom of Echo Reservoir. When you come to exit 115, get off the highway and turn southwest toward Henefer and the river. Take a right on the first frontage road you get to, follow that a few hundred yards till you can take a left into town. Follow that just a few more yards and the first bridge you come to is the one. There will be sheep all around you, and you will see a wave directly downstream from the bridge -- that's the Cow Wave

Cow Wave, Utah


Could be violent if provoked. Lots of shepherds.
