Class II – Class IV
One of the few free-flowing rivers remaining in the West, the Eagle is fed largely from the snow-pack on Vail Mountain. Trickling off the slopes early every spring, meltwater swells the narrow river corridor, quickly turning it into a raging deluge. Courageous paddlers enjoy the Upper Eagle’s Class IV-V Dowd Chute section, a virtual rollercoaster of haystack waves. The family-friendly Lower Eagle carries paddlers out of the lush scenery of the mountains and into the arid desert of the Western Slope.
