Each stretch has it's own character, but from Lawson to Golden, a Class IV boater has a lot to choose from. Lawson to Dumont is pretty fun and continuous fish ladder style with some good boofs if you know where to hit 'em. Dumont to Idaho Springs is a logical extension of the Lawson run and is a bit slower paced than the Lawson run. Kermits to Hwy 119 (NCC) is technical and has great push, but is really short. Lower CC has some good boofs, but is boring up top, short and is less technical.
