Yampa, South Beach to Duffy Mountain May 14, 2022 – May 15, 2022. Trip full. Waitlist available.
May 14 - May 15
The South Beach to Duffy Mountain stretch of the Yampa is an easy flatwater/Class I trip. In early May we have had good flow and not many mosquitoes, and not much (if any) competition for campsites.
This is a good trip to break out your gear from storage and get ready for the canoe season. It is also an easy trip for people new to canoeing and canoe camping. Pack a warm sleeping bag because the mornings will be frosty. As usual, be ready for all weather conditions from pouring rain, to snow, and to sunshine. Also, you can expect strong afternoon headwinds.
The first day’s float will be through private ranch land where the eagle nests will be seen. Many bald eagle nests are on this stretch and some may have visible babies in them. The second day we will be paddling through BLM land, which is more scenic but without the eagle nests and without the railroad. Flocks of sheep with big scary sheep dogs may be seen, but we will not be camping with them.
