Best Waterfalls for your first time

If a Class IV paddler was looking for some relatively safe and easy 10 foot or so waterfalls in Colorado, what are some suggestions? Anything out there relatively straight-forward and forgiving?

Big wood falls, daisy creek. Couldnt ask for an easier lead in. I have heard its shallow but seen it get penciled and nothing happened. It's more like 15ft too. Should also run the upper easy, I mean east if you haven't already. There's a pretty forgiving, almost but not quite vertical 10footer on it. What am I sayin, it's a slide.

Wolf creek at lower flows are easy too.

I'm sure theres many others but those just jumped out at me.

Coors Falls on the West Fork of Clear Creek. Half hour from town and you can walk down to check out the Z Gorge if you want a little more pucker factor...
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied...learn to swim!

ditto on Big Wood falls, rest of the run is fun and easy too. If you are feeling like stepping it up a notch while there, OBJ, put in falls is just as easy and a better landing, just a harder run overall
