Liam,
There is no water in Castle Rock,but you are about 30-45 minutes from the So.Platte via Sedalia;Chutes run II[III],Foxton on theN. Fk. III low to IV-high,Waterton III+ to IV w/play and long season.It will take you 1/2 hour to get into Denver +15 minutes to get to play parks at Union,Confluence,and Golden. Apx. 2 hours to Pueblo play or the lower Arkansas;Parkdale III and Royal Gorge III-IV. If you're looking for more advanced stuff there are many creeks within an hour or two of Denver.
Highly recomended that you buy 'Colorado Rivers and Creeks II" can be hard to find. Go to the playparks or Waterton on a weekend you'll meet some boaters.

Yay. As with most things in Colorado, just look for the crowds of people and lines.

Check out coloradowhitewater.org. They have a message board too, which I'm sure you can find a link for on the main page. Good way to meet folks, but generally more beginner oriented. They do a lot of work promoting our sport, and dealing with access issues in Colorado, so good group to join regardless.

There's a yahoo group for beginners in Colorado too, but I don't know the link.

If you're looking for advanced stuff, best bet is here at the buzz - it won't be hard to tap in.

Here are links to a couple of clubs within reasonable distance from Castle Rock

Denver - http://www.coloradowhitewater.org/

Colorado Springs - http://www.pikespeakwhitewaterclub.com/index.html

The Pikes Peak Whitewater Club has a forum.

Welcome to Colorado,

Mike

Not quite highschool, but CSM has a paddle club with a bunch of people, primarily 17-25.
