I second the hike at Harding. I think you end up at a point called Wagon Wheel which is really beautiful. I also second the hike up to Signature Cave which is opposite shore of Wagon Wheel at Harding. You can walk up through the flats to a nice cave and see a bunch of signatures. I believe there is one there from Bus Hatch but could be wrong. If you take anything out of that cave, or take anything you picked up along the way, you're guaranteed to get hurt in Warm Springs.
Just got off the Yampa yesterday. Was fine running at ~1600. I would think anything down to 1000 and your golden.
I did a good hike up sand canyon(last canyon on your left before the confluence) that was pretty cool. Got to scramble up 3 pitches to get into the canyon.
