An alternative to rafting the Colorado, the Roaring Fork River presents river runners with a jumble of bumpy Class II and III whitewater. To float the lower section of the Roaring Fork River from Carbondale to Glenwood Springs, launch boats under the intersection of Highways 82 and 133 or go rafting and kayaking.
This section has great views of Mount Sopris and fun Class I to III rapids. Continue all the way to Two Rivers Park where there is a convenient boat ramp at the confluence of the Roaring Fork and Colorado Rivers, or consider continuing on the Colorado River through South Canyon towards New Castle. Roaring Fork River rafting and kayaking options are top notch!
