The put-in location is a short drive from Silverthorne. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in
    Colorado is often tougher than elsewhere, so keep in mind that a large number of rivers in this state are not easy. Getting a good workout and spending some quality time in nature are great reasons to come. The nature scenery
of Chaffee County and the water flowing gracefully down River Runners will make you feel great. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of places for that. There are some good hotels near the river, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. When you're paddling down a Sawatch Range river like this one you always get great scenery  
along the way too.

Briefly about the general area:
Near River Runners you come across Coal Kiln Gulch which is a wonderful spot to stop at, and at River Runners you always meet someone from Nathrop. There's no way anyone can get bored here in the Sawatch Range. Going for a hike along the Browns Creek Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this area. If the weather is great here at River Runners, you can go for a hike along the Harvard Trail. Not much rain falls here at River Runners. The month of August is the wettest with most of the rain, and January on the other hand is the driest.
