Your Favorite 3+/4- Runs

Hi! I'm coming out to Colorado with a group of friends the second week of June. I'm interested in knowing what your favorite class 3+/4- runs are. We'll have 5 days of paddling so if you want to list your top 5 that would be great. Thanks so much!

Ok You Devil

All right Devil's Advocate....I see there's no southern hospitality over there.
Ha Ha. Actually I graduated from CU so I know a good bit about Colorado. I do read mt. buzz but I'm just not a big "poster" Unfortunately I wasn't paddling while I was in school. This will be my second trip out to paddle. Last time we did Upper Rustic and Poudre Park, Alto Alto SBC, Royal Gorge, Numbers, Taylor Canyon, Bogan Canyon (Crystal) and Clear Creek. And you're right....I'm looking for the secret stash.... I'm particularly interested in knowing if Gunny Gorge is worth doing and wondering what I've overlooked. Thanks everybody for your input. I'd love to have more if you feel like it...

Gunny Gorge is definitly worth doing. It was one of my favorite trips last year. Imagine the Royal gorge without all the people, steal or concrete. It's not a bad one day float in a kayak but there are lots of side canyons that beg to be explored so if you can get the support I'd do it over a weekend. The drive to the putin REQUIRES 4 wheel drive, and its about a mile hike in to the river.
