Glenwood Springs also has a thriving kayaking culture thanks in large part to the Glenwood Whitewater Activity Area. Nearly every day from spring through fall, paddling enthusiasts gather at the in-river attraction to practice and demonstrate their boating maneuvers on the standing wave.
Kayakers and rafters can also access the Colorado River from the boat launches located at the rest areas in Glenwood Canyon. The Grizzly Creek put-in is the most popular. The Colorado River offers kayakers everything from smooth water for practicing rolls and other maneuvers to Class III and IV rapids for maximum thrills. Colder than the Colorado, the Roaring Fork River provides river runners shallower water and a different set of challenges.
