Middle Ten Mile


From the Officers Gulch Exit on I-70 to the Frisco exit is a nice 20 minute long stretch of class IV whitewater. Steep and cold, the water runs fast and is too shallow to roll. Some good boofs exist but no play, better to bring the creek boat. Seal launch off the bridge at Officer's for max enjoyment. Lap it via the ultra fast shuttle or continue to the lake to make lengthen the experience.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Ten Mile Creek are between a bare minimum of 350cfs and a high of 1,000cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 09050100, the Tenmile Creek Bl North Tenmile C Remember only watercraft are permitted at Middle Ten Mile.
