Description

As the San Juan River flows down from the San Juan Mountains in southern Colorado, it passes through the town of Pagosa Springs and some excellent mountainous and forested terrain for whitewater rafting.

Whitewater rafting on the San Juan River near Pagosa Springs, Colorado includes:

Upper San Juan
High country style floating, typically with smaller boats and crews on this fast and fun stretch.

Mesa Canyon
As the San Juan River travels south from Pagosa Springs it flows through a gorgeous tree-lined canyon abounding with splashy whitewater, scenery, and wildlife. Eagles, hawks, deer, bear, and wild ducks are often spotted on this popular section.

Montezuma Canyon
Later in the year, as the river flows slow down, this sandstone canyon south of Pagosa Springs is known for relaxed float trips.
