Stand Up Paddle Board Tours in Salida, Colorado

SUP Board the Salida Town Run on the Arkansas River

This stand up paddle board trip is a unique way to experience Colorado’s Arkansas River. Spend the first hour on mostly flat water learning how to stand on the board, paddle, ferry across the river, and catch eddies. The Salida Town Run is considered a beginner stretch of water, but will be a challenge for most people – especially if it is your first time on a SUP board. Float seven miles right back to River Runners at Salida. Some class II rapids will be encountered. You can choose to run the Salida Play Park (class III) or you can get out at the top and walk to the take-out. Participants must be at least 12 years old, in good shape, and strong swimmers.
