I'm new to the front range and would love to hear any recommendations for canyoneering trips in the state. I realize that this may not be the ideal place to post this, but I was hoping someone had a few recommendations to get me started planning.

Thanks for any help!

There are some pretty rad-but-cold-looking wet canyons around Ouray (more here).

Heading up the best pitches of the route. Perfect rock at a nice relaxed angle!

Your best bet for canyoneering (or should I say canyoning) in Colorado is definitely Ouray. Everything from easy cruises to all day adventures. There are many canyons to keep you busy for a week straight, and if you get done early there's fun climbing to fill up the afternoon.

And if you're feeling really adventurous, I happened across a TR of a winter descent of Bear Creek a few years back, so it's doable but probably pretty tough.

For what its worth, A lot of canyoneering in Utah is closer than Ouray.

There is also some near Dinosaur.

Check out this book, its really good once you figure out its formatting.
