North Platte River Rafting

A whitewater rafting journey on the North Platte River begins in the remote northern portion of the area known as North Park in Colorado at an elevation of 8,000 feet, about 20 miles west of the town of Walden. This rolling valley, famous for its spectucular scenery, fishing, cattle ranches and wildlife, ends abruptly in a mass of Precambrian metamorphic rock. The swift North Platte River has steadily eroded a narrow section of the ancient deposit, forming what trappers first called Northgate Canyon. During early spring launches, the water of the North Platte is quite cold. Daytime highs range from 50 to 85 degrees, and overnight lows range from 35 to 55 degrees. Afternoon rain showers can be common.
