San Miguel – Rafting Colorado
Class I – III | 1-5 day trips
The San Miguel River winds its way through alpine terrain near Telluride, Colorado and Trout Lake in the shadows of 14,000 foot Mount Wilson in the San Juan Mountains to a desert confluence with the Dolores River, 80 miles to its north. Natural flood cycles and a history of very little development have kept many parts of this river in pristine condition. With 3 Conservancy-protected preserves along its length, the San Miguel River white water rafting hosts scenic sandstone canyons and mysterious granite passages. These canyons create an incredible passage way for those rafting Colorado rapids. Rare riverbank plant life thrives along with abundant bird life including great blue herons with this river supporting some of the best riparian (stream side) habitat in the Upper Colorado Basin.
As you raft downstream toward the Dolores and lower elevations, the San Miguel’s flora and fauna change around each bend of the river. This is a terrific family trip for rafting Colorado Class II and III rapids along the Upper San Miguel River provide more challenging kayaking and rafting. San Miguel River Colorado whitewater rafting trips varying in length from 1-5 days are available and trips of 6-12 days are available by combining the San Miguel with the Dolores River and the Colorado River.
