    Mountain Whitewater Descents

Mountain Whitewater Descents is an outdoor adventure outfitter offering guided whitewater rafting trips, guided inflatable kayaking trips, kayak instruction and equipment rentals on Colorado's only "Wild and Scenic" River, the Cache la Poudre.

Conveniently located only about 80 minutes from Denver and Estes Park, the Poudre offers some of the closest, most exciting, and still somewhat unknown, whitewater rafting in the state. The river starts in the snow capped peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park, then twists, turns, and tumbles through cliffs and rock spires. Its almost continuous rapids keep your adrenaline flowing, and the chances to see eagles, deer, black bear, and big horn sheep will keep your eyes open.
