Close to Aspen/Snowmass and suitable for all abilities of rafters, the Upper Roaring Fork is a locals’ favorite when it comes to half-day rafting adventures for a good reason: It’s super convenient and super fun.

The trip starts off in beautiful Woody Creek Canyon before hitting its stride in Snowmass Canyon, where you’ll encounter rollicking class III rapids such as Toothache, Pipeline, and Sledgehammer. Everyone in the raft will need to do their share of medium-intensity paddling as you navigate the drops, but you’ll get breaks in between, making this run suitable for ages 8 and up.

Whether it’s your first time on the river or your 20th, you’ll love the rapids and scenic views on this stretch of the Fork.

What’s Included
The raft trip, shuttle, splash gear, wetsuit, snacks and lunch (when specified). Photos are not included but can be purchased online immediately after the trip!

What to Wear Rafting
We suggest wearing quick drying clothing such as non-cotton shorts and t-shirt or bathing suit. Be sure to bring waterproof sunscreen (you will be rafting at 9,000 feet where the sun is intense!), sunglasses with a retaining device, and comfortable walking shoes. We will provide you with neoprene booties, so your shoes will not be going in the river. Bring a towel and a change of clothes for the ride home.
