I never found this trail. Asked the locals and no one heard of it.

Did whitewater rafting in this river with Performance Tours a few years back. It's a fun experience! This river is great for the novice in rafting. We also saw some wild life. The canyon was beautiful!

Beautiful day at Brown's Canyon. The trails are rugged and unkept making for a wonderful back country feel while being just minutes from the town of Buena Vista.

Well, not kayaking, but rafting. Many operating companies to choose from. I have my favorite, but don't know if I can endorse here so I won't. THe Brown's Canyon trip is a lot of fun especially for beginners and families. Mainly Class III rapids, but fun.
