A fun but short more manageable section of the Poudre Narrows.  Fun boofs abound.  Middle Narrows is generally Class IV until the water gets very high.  This run is legitamately fun down to 1.3' if you know where to be.  Below that some of the sections are a little too bony for most boaters.   Run laps or combine it with the upper and/or lower section. Weather on the river today will be mostly sunny and hot, with a high near 97. south wind 7 to 10 mph, with gusts as high as 16 mph.

This run is accessible from 2 public boat access points along the Cache La Poudre River.

Season Begins: March & Ends: September
