Colorado whitewater, Animas River

Bakers Bridge to Trimble Lane section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS I-II     6 miles
  The wonderful Colorado scenery and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream are reasons enough to come here and paddle. This stretch of Animas River in -blank- County is 6 miles long and is a class I-II section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more challenging than the national average, so if you're not from around here don't forget that lots
    of rivers here are not for beginners. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. Great exercise and just hanging out with mother nature are sure to keep you coming back for more. This is the
only paddling stretch along Animas River. This stretch has has enough mileage, suitable for an afternoon trip. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The wild scenery of the San Juan and Jemez Mountains is great.
