North Fork of the Gunnison River

 Enjoy whitewater excitement and big mountain views while floating through the breathtaking North Fork Valley. The North Fork of the Gunnison flows 33 miles from its headwaters in the West Elk Wilderness to its confluence in the Gunnison Gorge National Conservation Area.  The river twists, turns and drops its way 10 unforgettable miles between the towns of Paonia and Hothckiss. The action starts in Paonia at School Lunch (class III) and doesn't end until we conquer a 1/2 mile stretch of continuous whitewater known as "The Ledges".   A journey down the North Fork is an adventure your family will never forget. Join us May through June for whitewater excitement!
