North Platte River

The North Platte is one of the last free flowing rivers in Colorado. Raft trips are commonly 2 or 3 days, starting at 8000 feet and descending through class 4 rapids of Northgate Canyon, and continuing through stunning spruce forests and fun rocky rapids. The river is runnable from May through mid-July, and is suitable for ages 14 and up. The North Platte is known for trout fishing and as a wilderness area, has great opportunities for viewing wildlife. Eagles, elk and even cougars are often sited while floating this remote and beautful river.
