You can raft the Taylor, they run it commercially, but it always looks too bony for me. You can also run the Gunnison from Almont to Gunnison. Its a class 2, more of a fishing float. Or you can drive over cottonwood pass (beautiful drive) and run the Arkansas.
Be careful on the Taylor and Gunnison, its almost all private property and its very disputed area for river runners. You can search to read all the bad stories of conflicts with property owners. Just stay in your boat, dont touch your foot on the river bottom and dont pull over anywhere.
