class I and II floats

I'm looking for some class I and II day floats within about 2 hours from Carbondale Co.. We will be there the last week of July. We have a couple of duckies and some hard boats. If we could get a commercial shuttle that would be good but not necessary. Any help will be appreciated. thanks

New Castle to Silt, Solid Class 1 boat ramps, Grizzly to 2 rivers in g-wood have to carry boats down to river after 8 am till 5 pm, carbondale to 2 rivers, g wood to to new castle Watch ot for south canyon waves can slip through on river left, glenwood play wave - boat run through on right, and dinosaur if it is still high enough for it sat way way way left. If you wanna do a camp/ float go to the upper colorado Pumphouse to radium or Rancho about 3hrs away from c-dale

Pumphouse to Rancho is class II-III (I know, it's barely class III, but it's still out of the OP's stated difficulty and range). There are many miles of class I-II river from Rancho to Bair Ranch exit on I-70. There is also a boat ramp in Parachute, so I suppose you could run Rifle or Radium to Parachute. All the other runs pinemnky13 listed are good too. Grizzly to South Canyon is probably the best, but a long run. Usually run Grizzly to Two Rivers Park or Two Rivers to South Canyon or Tibbets (Tibbets is the large pull-out/rest area on east bound I-70 between New Castle and South Canyon, I don't remember what side of Canyon Creek exit though).
