Arkansas River - Browns Canyon (Fisherman's Bridge to Stone Bridge)

Colorado-US  

Description

This is another quality run on the Arkansas.  If you had to pick one solid class III run in CO many would choose this as the run.  At higher flows this stretch approaches class IV due to the continuous nature of the run and the rapids.  This area sees kayaks, rafts, fishing, commercials and just about everything else.

Despite the popularity and the roadside nature of this canyon, the area is still secluded and worth hitting.
