The Slate River is known for snaking its way through Crested Butte, flowing from a source near Yule Pass and finally joining the East River southeast of CB. The length of river from town to Skyland is known for its mellow twists and turns, as well as beautiful views of Mount Crested Butte and Paradise Divide. Depending on river flow, the tour can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours.
