The Buena Vista River Park – The MTN Trail

The Buena Vista River Park – The MTN Trail

The Buena Vista River Park​ is located in the town of Buena Vista, CO. Besides being one of the largest whitewater parks in the USA, it also happens to have some of the highest quality play features to be found anywhere.   The park officially begins just above the Barbara Whipple Bridge with 2 river access points for Anglers, or anyone who wants to find their way to the river. Just below the access points is the first feature of the park. Uptown wave is a kayaking “hole” which is friendly for intermediate and advanced paddlers. There is a good run out below the wave, which means that there’s plenty of time to make your roll. Staircase wave is the next feature, and has quickly become a river surfer’s paradise.

Grand Lake Colorado – A Wonderful Escape

Grand Lake Colorado – A Wonderful Escape

Tucked up against the mountains at the Western entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park is a little town with big appeal, Grand Lake. I am always surprised by the amount of people who are unaware of Grand Lake and everything it has to offer. This town is located at the headwaters of the Colorado River and is situated on the shores of Grand Lake, Colorado’s deepest natural body of water. The shores of this lake are beautiful with soaring mountains serving as the back drop to the clear pristine water lapping at the lakes edges. The lake is home to the world’s highest registered yacht club and is the perfect location to kayak, SUP, canoe and even water ski. There is a wonderful little swimming beach reached by the town’s boardwalk for those who don’t mind the cool waters. In addition to Grand Lake there are two other bodies of water positioned very close to one another, Shadow Mountain Lake and Lake Granby. One of the biggest draws of...
