New To Denver Area

Hey all! I just moved to Westminster, CO from Virginia. I'm looking for the best play spots around this area, and any potential paddle buddies. Please let me know the good places to splash! Thanks!

Augusta County is a pretty far South from where I came from. I recommend checking out Paddle Prattle:

Other than that I'm not sure about clubs in that area. You're not to far from the Maury River, which has some fun rapids on it, and once you guys get that roll the New River is only 3 hours out and the Gauley is just down the road from there! I'm pretty jealous about that one!

Good Luck on the East Coast!

Welcome! The season is dying down. Playboating especially. You still have some options on the Colorado River for river running and floating. Fluffy Muffin or M-Wave might be in this fall still. Some others might have better ideas.

Not sure about the Fluffy Muffin, but M Wave will be in until the end of the month. Both spots are in Colorado, the Muffin is below Blue Mesa Dam on the Gunnison and M Wave is in Montrose.

Welcome to CO from a former VA resident.

And that's Wonder Falls on the Big Sandy, no?

It's actually Ohiopyle Falls on the Youghiogheny River.
