The Lower Boulder Canyon river run in Colorado is a scenic and exciting adventure for experienced paddlers. With Class III-IV rapids, this section of the Boulder Creek offers a challenge with tight drops, technical boulder gardens, and narrow chutes. There are several river obstacles to watch out for, including steep drops and strong currents. The best time to float this section is from May to June, with recommended water levels of 300-500 cfs. As water levels rise, the difficulty of the rapids also increases. Paddlers should have strong navigation skills and be prepared for the challenging conditions.
