Colorado whitewater, Animas River

Trimble Lane to 32nd Street Park section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     10 miles
  This stretch of Animas River is 10 miles long and it is classified as a class I-II section by American Whitewater. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. The rivers for whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state are often tougher than in other states, so keep in mind that rivers here are less forgiving. You can enjoy this stretch more if you take your time, so why not pack your sleeping bag too. There arenít any hotels
    right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors have
a lot of people coming here. The natural beauty of Colorado and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. There are no other stretches to paddle along Animas River than the Trimble Lane to 32nd Street Park stretch. The river winds through the San Juan and Jemez Mountains and you get great scenery.
