Breck Play Park

I just recently bought a place on the Blue River south of Breckenridge (just south of the Conoco). Is it runnable through town to the playpark? How is the playpark? How much water is needed for it to be decent? Any info is much appreciated.

The stretch through town is good III (not sure on ideal levels, watch for wood and hazards). The park typically runs for a couple months, and good for 2-4 weeks. It's playable at 50, good at 70, and primo at 100-150. Over 150 is crankin' in that there tiny streambed.

If you run it through town, you may want to put in just downstream of the culverts under S. Park Ave. Running the culverts are def. a step or two above Class III. The only other thing to watch out for are areas just downstream of Watson Ave.(where the free skier parking used to be) where the river flows through the willows in a few spots and missing the line could be costly. Def. take a look at these areas before you run it, then decide.

Yeah, watchout for the culverts at S. Park. They can be run, but I'd put in below there if you are intent on it. I haven't looked at it in years, but I'm pretty sure the dam at the maggie isn't runable above there. Then after the culverts you have the dredge boat pond, then the public art in the river by the Riverwalk, then culverts at Ski Hill and Watson, then lots of willows and thin water before the play park.
