white water rafting near Breckenridge

Will be staying in Breck May 6-12. Any middle of the road (1/2 day)rafting trips in that area without having to drive over 1 hour?

Also, any news what weather will be like next week?

Buena Vista is your best bet (but an hour away). Great drive. Do the morning rafting trip on Browns Canyon, check out the ghost town of St. Elmo, hit the hot springs, drive back thru Leadville to Copper Mtn and around to Breck. Should make for a nice day.

great, that's what I thought. Why morning trip? Better water, etc? Or that way gives us the day to explore on the way back? Thanks for the info.

Morning river trips will give you better weather and you can avoid the late afternoon thunderstorms. Check out this new company on the Arkansas...www.raftbrownscanyon.com.

St. Elmo is a ghost town you can visit. In the area, there are Mt Princeton Hot Springs (Nathrop) and Cottonwood Hot Springs (Buena Vista). I prefer Mt. Princeton - I like to sit in the river springs.
