Class II – Class IV
The Gunnison drainage offers paddlers from the town of Gunnison to Grand Junction multiple options for river running. Families and intermediate paddlers enjoy the Red Bridge runs near Lake City, in addition to the western canyon feel of the Lower Gunnison from Delta to Grand Junction. The Gunny Town Run in Gunnison and the Lake Fork Box offer great fishing or a quick splash of Class II fun. The Upper Gunnison from Almont to Blue Mesa Reservoir is one of the best fishing streams in Colorado, attracting anglers of all ages and abilities; and the Gunny Gorge is an incredible Class III canyon run with a bonus hike down into the gorge at the put-in!
