I seem to remember a bit of discussion last year about a WW park in Estes Park. Is there a description of the park anywhere and has anyone been there? Is it worth the drive from Boulder once it starts flowing and the weather is warm again?

What months are best?

thanks ....

Not really. There are two waves in town that are decent to play on if your in the area or live there. If your in Boulder, go to your park or to Golden, or Lyons, its not worth going to Estes unless you like tons of tourists watching you play on a wave that has a rock just under the wave at headhitting level, and another a few feet downstream. Now if you want to try some tight, manky, low water creeks, Rocky Mtn NP, has those instead, but so far I'm the only one dumb enough to bump and grind my way down them.

With the snow pack that is there this year, late may - maybe aug, best months will be later in june and july. Call the Mountainshop in Estes, ask for Dave or Patrick, they would be best to talk to if you really want information.

Thanks. That explains why I've only seen newspaper reports and no kayaker reports.

Golden is close enough and with the Southern Sun right here on the south side of town its a pretty quick trip from cold water to a cold brew. I guess I'll just need to find something else to justify my dependence on foreign oil. That's what weekends are for.
