Colorado River Runs' certified guides shuttle adventurers along the undulating Colorado River. The river, which is surrounded by a canyon and mountains, fills itself with Class I–II rapids, which are gentle enough for children to ride or bathe in. Trekkers begin the three-hour, half-day trip at 1 p.m., gleaning rafting techniques and strapping on safety equipment before taking to the waters, and full-day excursionists head out at 9 a.m. and receive lunch during the six-hour jaunt. You can opt to steer a duckie, a stable, two-person inflatable kayak that provides a more boisterous experience than the standard, mild-mannered raft. Those who arrive early can peruse the old ranch buildings, donkey sanctuary, and one-room schoolhouse in the 19th-century-era pioneer town.
Colorado River Runs
Intent on immersing people in the local scenic beauty, certified river-rafting guides at Colorado River Runs navigate fellow nature lovers over whitewater zips, bumps, and baubles for safe and exciting adventures. Sightseers witness the awesome scenery of canyon overlooks, vistas of Gore Range, or the sprawling greenery of Vail Valley as their ultradurable Avon rafts cascade down the river. With absolute safety as their highest priority, guides wrap each participant in a Coast Guard–approved life jacket, spray on trout repellent, and provide thorough safety briefings before leading passengers down the less raucous, family-friendly currents of the Colorado River. Licensed by the state of Colorado and boasting a spotless safety record, the team operates under special-use-permits granted them by the Bureau of Land Management.
