End of August rafting

My 1st visit to Breckenridge with my family will be the last week of August. Is this too late for WWRafting for teens? Just exploring things to do now. Any great suggestions for active family with 4 teens is welcome and appreciated. Looking also for off the beaten path, nearby towns etc. Thanks in advance.

For rafting in August I would wait until you got to the area to book - or at least post on tripadvisor a week or so prior to your visit. WWR is subject to flows - my guess for end of August would be to do a double Shoshone (Class III) run on the Colorado in the Glenwood Springs area. You could tie it together with a hot spring visit. And/Or come back to Breck by driving down to Aspen and across Independence Pass - then via Leadville or Buena Vista back to Breck.

You could also do a float trip down the Colorado via the Pumphouse Run.

Yeah, water levels tend to drop as the summer goes on. It is definitely not something I would book really far in advance. Lots of good hiking in this area. Here is a link to the New Summit Hiker book on amazon. Used copies for like $3. This thing is my bible in the summertime.
