Rapids: Class IV

Ages 18+

Situated in the heart of the Rockies, the Arkansas River threads its way through a whitewater paradise in the center of Colorado. From the headwaters at Leadville, Colorado (11,000 ft.), you will run the Numbers 1-10 rapids which is truly home to world class challenges of class IV rapids - running solid thrills from top to bottom. An incredible section with Pine forest lining the river banks and the peaks of the Collegiate Mountains tower over 14,000 feet above the river corridor!
