The Lower Elk?

Have to go to Steamboat briefly and wanted to make a trip out of it, is the Lower Elk worth bringing my raft and frame from Vail with me? Any beta would be appreciated.

Kayak Beta for Lower Elk

I ran the Lower Elk a number of years ago in a Kayak. It is one of my favorite runs. Here is what I remember. Cold water, continuous Class 3ish with little or no eddys but easily read-n-run. Mainly fun wave-trains and I do not remember many big holes. Nice long 8+ mile wave-train kayak run. I am not a rafter, but if I were going to be in the area and the Lower Elk was running, I would for sure bring my Kayak.

Hope this helps, Lenny.
