Arkansas River Management

The Arkansas River Headwaters runs from just south of Leadville, CO, one hundred twenty miles south and east to the town of Cañon City. This section of the Arkansas River includes Pine Creek, The Numbers, The Fractions, The Milk Run, Browns Canyon, The Salida Run, The Upper and Lower Ark runs, and the Royal Gorge Run. Congressionally designated wilderness on this section of the river is in Browns Canyon. How the river resource is protected and allocated is of importance to recreational paddlers.
