Uncompahgre River

River Description:

The Uncompahgre River from the town of Ridgway to the Ridgway Reservoir is a great introductory rafting section with wonderful wildlife and scenery opportunities. The majestic San Juan Mountains fill the backdrop for the entire run! Float through prime wildlife habitat for an up-close look at songbirds, deer, and birds of prey! Narrow canyon sections of the Uncompahgre River provide a unique and remote experience for paddlers and a rare opportunity to get off the beaten path. A fantastic run on over 15 miles of remote access on the lower Uncompahgre River is also available with excellent water flows maintained throughout the summer. Access on this mostly private section of river is extremely limited, with no defined take-out location. But guided trips are available though this wonderful section throughout the majority of the summer.
