River float trip

Is there a float trip a family can take near Beaver Creek? The children would be ages 9-12. Some gentle rapids would be o.k., but I am not interested in rafting a class three river or above.

The half day trips on the Colorado out of Glenwood Springs are perfect. Combine it with a trip to the hot springs.

Have fun.

Another option... You can raft the Milk Run in Buena Vista on the Arkansas River - also called Ruby Ripple Run by some outfitters. There are hot springs in the area as well as horseback riding. I like Mt. Princeton Hot Springs, they have a 300 ft waterslide to add to the fun for kids. Glenwood is about an hour from Beaver Creek and Buena Vista maybe 1.5 hours.
