Class II – Class IV
The Taylor River begins below the Taylor Reservoir and is divided into three sections enjoyed by paddlers and anglers alike. With incredible views of the Collegiate Peaks, the upper section is known for its constant flow of Class III rapids and is the most popular. The lower section is a gentler float trip with mostly rolling Class II rapids. The last section, Lotis Creek, is the advanced stretch containing continuous Class III-IV rapids and is only for experienced paddlers. The Taylor is nearest to the towns of Gunnison and Crested Butte.
