Grade 2 - Medium

Rapids are straighforward with medium sized, regular waves. The path through the rapids can be clearly seen from the water and is often indicated by well-defined chutes of Vs of water. There are some obstacles that require manoeuvring around, but paddlers with a good command of basic strockes can easily miss them.

Colo River - Bob Turner's Track and then 17 km below

Dec 13 2014

Participants: Deb C, Mark B, Andrew C

Report: Deb C.

It took 3¼ hours to walk down a 3½ km track. At first 2 of us carried our kayaks but towards the end there was a trail of coloured plastic left on the track from dragging them. Mark tried out a new trolley and kindly loaded it up with group items such as; water bottles, breakdown paddle, first aid kit and other gear. This trolley lost a few parts along the way so did not quite make it down in one piece.
