River Guides

If you're coming from Montrose it's not a long drive at all to the starting location. The beautiful scenery of Colorado and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way there
    are not so many other good spots for that around here. A good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. 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. If you've been out of state whitewater rafting and kayaking you might find the rivers here more demanding, so if you're not from around here don't forget that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving.

Briefly about the general area:
Sweitzer State Park is a gorgeous
 
location any time of year; there is a great hiking trail nearby called the Blue Grouse Trail. Lawhead Gulch is a glorious location to explore nearby, and if you're dropping by from Austin, you won't be the only one. This river is so good.
