Raft & Rock Review on Tripadvisor
Rode 1/2 day w/ Millie as our guide. Great ride through Durango & Mil was a fantastic guide. Got us through the rough rapids easily. Excellent scenery south of town. Enjoyed the longer trip.
Also did the rock climbing through Mountain Waters & it was a blast. Gary from Kling Mountain Guides was a great guide who was extremely patient & encouraging. Not a rock wall climb, X rock is very challenging, but extremely safe with back-up ropes. All climbing equipment provided, but bring lots of water.
