81° Mostly Sunny
The Numbers is a classic stretch of class IV whitewater on the Arkansas River upstream of Buena Vista. When the water is high and the sun is out, this is about as good as class IV boating gets in Colorado. At low and medium flows expect to see a lot of kayakers and rafters playing their way down the river. At higher flows, you may have the run all to yourself, even on a weekend.
Weather on the river today will be mostly sunny, with a high near 81. west southwest wind around 5 mph.
This run is accessible from 2 public boat access points along the Arkansas River.
The Numbers is currently
with streamflow levels at 363cfs,
runnable rate of 700cfs.
Streamflow levels and subsequent run conditions for Numbers are sourced from the USGS streamflow gage located at Arkansas River Below Granite, Co.
