Highside Adventure Tours

Summit county, Colorado whitewater outfitter

 
  The nature scenery of Colorado and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream make the trip here worthwhile. The average whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master in this state than those in other states, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers here are not as easy as elsewhere. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. There are nice comfortable hotels here, but if
    you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The put-in location is a short drive from Silverthorne. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of places for that.

Briefly
about the general area:
A spree to Arapaho National Forest when you're here at Highside Adventure Tours is a good idea, and if you're here you can take a hike along the Lily Pad Lake Trail. You'll never forgive yourself if you donít go skiing at Copper Mountain since you're here. If the weather is splendid here at Highside Adventure Tours, you can go for a hike along the Mesa-Cortina Trail; if you're stopping by from Frisco, you won't be
 
the only one. Ryan Gulch is a tremendous location to have a look at nearby, and a spree to close by Frisco Bay is very relaxing. Not much rainfall falls here at Highside Adventure Tours.
