I am looking for a good multi day trip with friends. We have three 14' rafts and approximately 7 people maybe more, will probably bring tubes, kayaks, and sup. Any suggestions on 3 to 4 day trips? we were hoping for near glenwood springs colorado but will consider just about anything. We are all fairly experienced river rats. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Not too many options if you don't have permit already. Gunnison above the colorado confluence. Maybe you can get a ruby Horsethief permit

Pump house to dotsero may fit your bill. Cisco to Moab on CO river.

None of these will really have much III on them.

You can do a nice 3 day trip on the N. Platte.
Ruby-Horsethief is good for 3 days with lots of hiking.
Maybe the Green out by Canyonlands?

Always can do a trip on the White River, no permits needed. About a 1.5 hr drive from Rifle. Check out fantasy canyon, a short trip from the takeout.

You didn't mention the time frame. But why not do the Ruby Horsethief and Westwater section. I'm interested in joining a trip around May 29th-July 1st since I'm getting off the Yampa. Give me PM if your interested.

you can float the Arkansas from the bottom of the Numbers to Canon City. Not quite wilderness but its a multiday and you can go shopping to resupply in Salida.

3 days, flaming gorge to crook campground take out. It's beautiful, then dessert, canyons, and open Brown's Park, but I love that stretch. Great fishing, wildlife viewing, float. Non permitted.

Don't forget the upper Colorado from Pumphouse down to catamount or through pin ball.....there might be some portage involved around a bridge or two though.
