If you are short on time, but still want an exciting and challenging rafting trip, the Numbers section of the Arkansas River can’t be beat! The Numbers is one of the best half-day Class IV rafting trips in the state of Colorado and it will keep you smiling from beginning to end.

This classic trip has it all from stunning mountain scenery, to smooth granite boulders and some of the most fun and continuous whitewater around. This trip is suitable for experienced rafters, and first-time rafters who are athletic, don’t mind paddling hard, and are up for adventure. All participants should expect to paddle and get wet!


  • 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 and/or a bathing suit. Also important are sunscreen (you will be rafting at nearly 9,000 feet where the sun is intense!), sunglasses with retaining device, waterproof camera, and old sneakers or sandals with a heal strap. Bring a towel to dry off with and a change of clothes for your ride home.

    We provide splash gear on all of our trips, and wetsuit, helmet, and wetsuit booties when appropriate.

    Whitewater River Scale

    CLASS I:
    Your bath tub.

    CLASS II:
    Mild. Predictable, smaller rapids. Great for younger families.

    CLASS III:
    Moderate. Larger, more irregular rapids. Wet passengers and energetic paddling to be expected. Most clients will take a Class III trip.

    CLASS IV:
    Wild. Long and unpredictable rapids, following in immediate succession.

    CLASS V:
    Extreme. This is the edge. Only experienced paddlers.
