Your Rocky Mountain Adventures whitewater rafting journey of 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 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.


North Platte Full Day
