The starting location is a reasonable drive from Montrose. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers
    here a bit more challenging, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that quite a few of the sections here are not easy. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way this area has a large number
of paddling rivers. A good workout and just hanging out with mother nature have people coming from far and near. Whitewater paddling here in the Uncompahgre Plateau Mountains is a great experience. The natural beauty of Ouray County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. There are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have  
to drive a bit to get to one, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car.

Briefly about the general area:
The great people of Ridgway like to hang out close by, and Telluride is a very popular ski area nearby. So much cool stuff to do in the Uncompahgre Plateau Mountains, not enough time. The beauty of mother nature reveals herself at McKean Spring, and a fine spot is Cuddigan Gulch. This is a really good river. Rigs FLY Shop & Guide Service is near Ridgway State Park which is a stunning location. Hiking is a popular thing to do around Rigs FLY Shop & Guide Service; Blue Lakes Trail is a great local trail.
