The Grizzly Creek to Two Rivers Park run is one of the more popular runs in Colorado for kayaks, canoes, and rafts.  This is generally a Class II run but at high water it is a class III.

Put in: East of Glenwood Springs exit Interstate 70 at the Grizzly Creek exit.  Grizzly Creek is a Rest Area for I-70 travelers and a favorite picnic spot.  It is also on the Glenwood Canyon bicycle trail and is the take out for the Shoshone kayak run.  Grizzly Creek is a pleasant place on a summer day.  Camping is available at Grizzly Creek.

Distance:  5 miles

Take out:  Two Rivers Park is located just below the confluence of the Colorado River and the Roaring Fork River on river right.  Exit Interstate 70 at Glenwood Springs.   Turn west at the first traffic light (you are the north side of the river).   Proceed about one-half mile then turn left to the park.
