Upper-Upper Ten Mile


This section is rarely run but does go in a big year. If Ten Mile is going well then there's enough for this, which is technically the S. Fork of TenMile Creek. Put in on the road to Leadville where the river goes under the road near the base of Climax Mine's lower tailings pond. A pre scout for wood is recommended. I clear expect Class III/IV boogie water and mini-canyon. Take out at the Copper Gas Station or continue downstream to class V Upper Ten Mile.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Ten Mile Creek are between a bare minimum of 600cfs 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 Upper-Upper Ten Mile.
