  • Love this whole area of Colorado. Awesome landscapes, water sports, hiking, fishing, hiking, camping, and more. Great place for kayaks. Waterskiing in the morning is like a dream, with the water often being smooth as glass. Lots of dirt roads for exploring surrounding lands.
  • Beautiful area! It's a must see when passing thru the area. Great hiking trails. The river does flood the trail at times. But the trail follows the river and it amazing!!
