The wonderful Colorado scenery and the cool fresh water make the trip here worthwhile. The beautiful Front Range scenery is an added bonus. You might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, in this general area you'll find lots of paddling places. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often more difficult than elsewhere, so

location. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp.
