Class II TO III+


Too High

The fbcoqyvxmjmiw river run in Colorado is a challenging Class III-IV run that features numerous obstacles, including several large boulders and tight, technical rapids. The best time to float this section of water is in the late spring or early summer, when the river is running at around 1,000-1,500 cubic feet per second. At lower flows, the rapids become more technical and require more precise navigation, while at higher flows the rapids become more powerful and require stronger paddling skills. Overall, this is a great run for experienced paddlers looking for a challenging and exciting adventure on the water.
