River Description

The upper section is smaller. You may choose to run from the bridge in Denver on down. Be on the lookout for barbed wire 400 yards downstream of the Denver Bridge. This is mostly Class 2-3. Shortly after a small bridge is a class 4 drop that is worth scouting. The rest of the run is an easy mini creeking run that is a lot of fun.
