Upper Blue (Blue River Cg To Columbine Landing)
Because of the many streams and rivers flowing in between the start of this section and Breckonridge (as well as Dillon Reservoir controlling flows), this part of the Blue can be run more reliably. This is a short technical section where the Blue drops through a small gorge. The gorge is where the actual harder whitewater is (class III/IV). The rest of the run is mainly a class II fishing stream (especially if you put in above the Blue River Campground).
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Blue River are between a bare minimum of 250cfs and a high of 2,200cfs.
