Lower River 1/2 Day (class II-III whitewater):  Half day trips on class II-III+ water are available from late May through mid-July or early August most years.  Our most popular "Lower River" trip launches just thirty minutes downstream from Telluride at Specie Creek and runs 9 miles to the Beaver Creek river access. This section features class II-III- whitewater, ideal for beginning and intermediate rafters, families and groups of mixed ability. Our age limit for this trip is 6 years/50lbs. Capacity per boat is 6 paddlers.

Upper River 1/2 Day (class II-III+ whitewater):  Our "Upper River" 1/2 day trip launches near Deep Creek, just 6 miles downstream from Telluride, and runs approximately 10 miles west to our take-out site just below Placerville. At higher water flows, this is more intense whitewater than the lower run, with long sections of constant class III rapids and occasional class III+ whitewater.  Our age limit for the upper river is 10 years. All participants must be strong swimmers in excellent physical condition.
