Want to get out on the river this summer but not sure how to start?

Join us in Firestone, CO for a half-day GUIDED canoe trip down the St. Vrain, July 28, 2019!

Though it's close to civilization, this section of the St. Vrain offers true wilderness mingled with rural rangelands, showcasing an interesting cross-section of Colorado's high prairie. You'll see domestic cattle alongside mule deer and you'll catch a glimpse of the Old West with the abandoned railroad bridges along the way!
