    in this river system that can be paddled as well. This section is quite short so you'd better be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. A bit of exercise and spending some quality time in nature are great
reasons to come. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking around here you'll find a large number of good places. There's camping available near Boulder Creek. Whitewater paddling here in the Front Range is a great experience. There are nice comfortable hotels here, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. Whitewater rafting and kayaking in Colorado is often more difficult than elsewhere, so don't forget that a  
lot of the rivers here are not suitable for beginners.

Briefly about the general area:
Going for a hike along the Green Mountain Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this neighborhood. You might want to pay a visit to Bluebell Canyon if you're here at Boulder Creek.
