Flat Water Paddling in Denver, CO
About Denver Flat Water Paddling
While Denver isn't a paddler's mecca, it does have a few nice areas to bring your boat. Cherry Creek Reservoir is one of the best and it's located right in the city. Views from the res include the city landscape on one side and the towering Rocky Mountains on the other. The South Platte River runs through the city and is placid enough in most sections for leisurely paddling. A bit farther down the road in Boulder (about 40 minutes away), Boulder reservoir offers another option that is equally as scenic and often less crowded. A little over an hour away, Lake Grandby is one of the true paddling destinations that can be combined with camping adventures or even local hikes.
