Upper Gore Creek

Class II+ TO III


65°, Chance T-Storms Then T-Storms

The Upper Gore Creek river run in Colorado is a Class IV/V+ section of whitewater, with steep drops and technical challenges. The run is best navigated by experienced paddlers with advanced skills in river reading and rapid negotiation. The river is narrow and fast-moving, with obstacles like boulders, overhanging trees, and steep drops that require precise maneuvering. The best time to float this section of water is during the spring runoff, which typically occurs in May and June. The recommended flow range for this section is 200-400 cfs, but it can be run up to 800 cfs with caution.

Weather today, Showers and thunderstorms likely, then showers and possibly a thunderstorm after 2pm. High near 65. East wind 5 to 10 mph becoming west in the morning. Chance of precipitation is 90%.
