Class III – Class IV
Flowing through downtown Steamboat Springs, Colorado, the Yampa River becomes a deluge during every spring runoff, making the Class III town run an awesome afternoon paddle for kayakers and rafters alike. Later in the summer, outfitters roll the rafts and rent inner tubes to hundreds of floaters a day. Fifty miles downstream the river enters a wilderness desert canyon and some of the most scenic class III-IV whitewater on earth. Visitors to the Yampa Canyon float through Dinosaur National Monument, finishing on the Green River in northern Utah.
