This is a great little canyon in the Central Colorado Rockies, renowned for both its fly fishing and rock climbing. It's also a nice place just to drive through, or pick a spot and hang out by the creek for a bit.

Great place to fish and it truly is blue ribbon trout fishing. A beautiful canyon and lots of wildlife. Go during the week to avoid the crowds. Most of it thankfully is catch and release.
