River Ratings

River Ratings

Green River - Lodore Canyon Class 3 to 3+

This trip offers excellent whitewater which is generally safe for the entire family. Rapids on this stretch require some difficult maneuvering on the part of your guide.

Yampa River Class 3 to 4

Rapids on this trip are generally very fun with very nice sized waves. Of specific interest is Warm Springs Rapid, which is a solid Class 4 rapid. However, we give you the option of walking around this one.

Colorado River - Cataract Canyon Class 3+ to 5

This is a whitewater trip. Rapids in Cataract are continuous and very large, especially during the high water months of May and June.

Green River - Split Mountain Canyon Class 2 to 3

This is a great all-around trip for just about everyone, especially families. Rapids offer good excitement but are generally safe for ages 6 and up.

Green River - Flaming Gorge Class 1 to 2

This is a great trip for those who may not want whitewater. It is a scenic float with abundant wildlife along the river corridor.
