A full day raft adventure in the mountains for families

Join us May and June for a full day family raft trip for those wanting a wilderness experience combined with whitewater that is appropriate for families with a sense of adventure. The Piedra meanders through continuous class II+ whitewater in a classic rocky mountain setting. After lunch is when we enter the Upper Box Canyon and it’s two defining rapids, Lone Pine and Limestone. Outstanding beauty in a remote setting with lively water makes a great introduction to rafting in the Durango & Pagosa Springs area.
