The San Miguel River has numerous outstanding full day stretches. The Upper/Lower Full Day Trip combines both half day stretches for a fun and fast adventure through a narrow Class III+ waterway. The Norwood Canyon Full Day leaves the highway and crowds behind for a variety of Class II-III rapids as the river transitions from alpine mountains to desert scenery. The Hanging Flume Historical Float gives a relaxed and unique interpretive tour of the historical activity in the area.
