Shoshone section of Colorado river open for rafting?

Interested in whitewater rafting on the colorado river June 21, 22, or 23. I heard the river was really high and that section (shoshone rapids) is closed to rafting. Any idea if it will be open when I get there? Also does anyone know if the bike path is still closed?

Thanks,

Mary

The bike path is currently closed and even though some parts look safe, the underpinnings are not solid according to CDOT so they are asking people to stay off. Here's a link to today's Glenwood's free paper - postindependent.com/news/11770390-113/path-g…

The river levels have been dropping this past week so hopefully by the time of your trip they will be rafting the area. I drove through the Canyon last week and the river was beautiful too look at but insane to get into.
