    Rafting Trips

The nature scenery of Summit County and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. The sections for whitewater rafting and kayaking here in Colorado are often more challenging than in other
states, so you'd better keep in mind that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners. If you're coming from Silverthorne it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location. There are many good hotels to choose from, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking in this general area you'll find lots of paddling spots. And of course, there are campgrounds  
nearby.
