Beginning as a trickle from its perch high on the Divide at Hoosier Pass, the Blue River descends approximately 65 miles to reach its confluence with the Colorado River near Kremmling. Dropping over 4,000 ft. in elevation, it winds through diverse landscapes and passes through the towns of Blue River, Breckenridge, Dillon and Silverthorne. The river supports a variety of ecosystems as it morphs into a medium-size waterway known for prolific insect life, oversized rainbow trout and a wild landscape punctuated by snowcapped peaks, rugged canyons and pine-lined banks.
Offering endless chances for recreation—including kayaking, whitewater rafting, canoeing, stand up paddle boarding and fly fishing—this waterway and its tributaries are the lifeblood of the basin and draw nature lovers, explorers and anglers from across the globe to experience the Blue.
