The Adventure: Ringbolt
Rating: beginner easy
This is another favorite. We do this one over and over! The first leg is an 8 mile paddle upstream (you never know what the current will be, so the difficulty rating can vary), the canyon runs are super fun, and then of course - there is the hot spring to relax in before paddling back. TAGS: intermediate to advanced kayaking, hiking, trail running, canyoneering, climbing
