Product Description:

Colorado may be a skier's paradise, but once the snow melts, it makes an abrupt transition into an exciting home for paddlers. Countless lakes and reservoirs offer flatwater paddling with mountain views in every direction. And there are stretches of river perfect for everyone: learning-appropriate sections for beginners, quality areas sure to thrill intermediates, and, yes, some of the most challenging whitewater anywhere on earth. Paddling Colorado describes thirty-four trips in a remarkable variety of settings―from downtown Denver to the remote canyons of the Dolores River. Offering whatever style of paddling you most enjoy, this guide shows the way to the best paddling opportunities in the state.
