The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Edwards. For all you camping people there are campgrounds nearby. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside Colorado you might find the rivers here a bit more challenging,
    so you'd better keep in mind that many of the rivers here are not very forgiving. There are nice comfortable hotels here, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Getting your paddling muscles
activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots of good spots for that around here. The beautiful scenery of Gunnison County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water are reasons enough to come here and paddle.

Briefly about the general area:
You might want to pay a visit to Blinberry Gulch since you're here at Scenic River Tours.
 
Why not take a refreshing hike along the Onemile Cattle Trail; Scenic River Tours is right by the Granite Basin Trail. This is a great river.
