Hi all -
Just bought my first boat, a Zoik Tandem IK, and I am dying to get on the water. Unfortunately, due to family circumstances, I can't get out of town for a while. So I was thinking it might pseudo-satiate my desires to float the South Platte through Denver. However, I know very little about the river and can't seem to find much detailed info on it. So I thought I would turn to the best and most reliable resource I know...you guys.
I could use some guidance on put-ins, take-outs, and anything else I might need to know. Is it a decent float for a couple of hours? Is the water quality so gross I shouldn't do it? Are there rapids I need to scout? Are there rapids at all? Any guidance you can offer would be much appreciated.
My background - I ran the Upper Colorado as a guide for one summer three years ago (and, occasionally, the Eagle). Since then, I haven't been on the water
Thanks in advance for any advice you have!!
