New Mexico whitewater, Mora River

Colfax county, Shoemaker to confluence with Canadian section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-V(V+)     30 miles
  The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit easier to master in this state than those in other states, so better not forget that a lot of the rivers in this state are suitable for beginners. The Shoemaker to confluence with Canadian section of Mora River is 30 miles long and has been determined by American Whitewater to be a class I-V(V+) section. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want
    to stay the night, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature have a lot of people coming here. The Shoemaker to confluence
with Canadian section is the only paddling section along Mora River. The San Juan and Jemez Mountains scenery is wonderful. A stretch this long is of course too much for a one day trip, so make sure you pack enough food along with your camping gear. The natural beauty of Colfax County and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. There's camping available near Mora River.
