White Water

Southwest Colorado is a great place to experience a white water adventure. Whether you are looking for a multi-day trip (lower Dolores), a mellow afternoon float (town run) or an exciting class IV whitewater adventure (Stoner Stampede) you can find it on the Dolores River. The upper Dolores River runs in the spring, usually getting below boating levels by late June. The lower Dolores River is dam controlled and usually has boatable releases in the spring with intermittent releases occurring randomly during the summer.
