4 hour / 9 mile trip with class I & II rapids

A 9 mile river trip which takes about 3.5 to 5 hours to paddle with class I & II rapids.

Our most popular run. This is a solid beginner trip with great mountain scenery, and plenty of fun rapids. Customers taking this trip will be shuttled 9 miles upstream to the Horseshoe Bend public boat ramp to launch. You will then paddle downstream back to our river front store location. This trip takes a full HALF DAY to complete so make sure to pack a lunch and bring plenty to drink. The trip has numerous class I rapids and just one moderately challenging Class II rapid called “Richie’s Falls” located near the beginning of the trip. The first four miles of the trip has a special designation as a State Scenic River section. As this trip ends where your car is parked, this trip has the most flexibility on take out times so it making it a great choice for those interested in fishing along the way.
PRICING INCLUDES: Rental of boat, paddles, life jackets, safety orientation, river maps, use of dry bags, and all required shuttles.
