My trip to Colorado is coming up very soon, and I can't figure out how to make the most of the low water. I will be Colorado for two weeks. I am arriving in Denver and need to pick someone up in Denver exactly 1 week into my trip, so I am thinking about two separate 1 week long road trips.

Here are some potential trips. What do you guys think I should do based on flows and how these runs are at low flows????

1)Stay around Denver: Bailey, Blackrock, Lower South Boulder, Foxton, Waterton

2)Poudre Narrows, Spencer Heights, Cross Mtn Gorge, Encampment

3)Numbers, Pine Creek, Royal Gorge, Slaughterhouse, Crystal Narrows, Barrell Springs, Homestake, Dowd Chute.

Thanks for the help. I am struggling with this one:)

Depends quite a bit on the dates. You could probably do any one of those options if you came RIGHT NOW......if you wait more than a couple of weeks many of those options are going to dry up.

I would say the safest bet is to combine parts of #1 and #3.

I would go to a different state if boating is your main reason for visiting. Numbers/Gorge/Bailey/Gore are proably the best low flow runs imo.

I am locked into CO, as this is a trip to visit my buddy in Boulder.

The dates of my trip are 6/13 - 6/24.

I will repost looking for suggestions as I get closer to the trip.
