MILD & SCENIC HALF DAY RAFT TRIP DESCRIPTION

Commencing just bellow the Shoshone Rapids, the Mild & Scenic Half Day Trip embarks from Grizzly Creek, offering a delightful 10-mile scenic float. Meandering through a captivating stretch of the Colorado River, this experience unveils intermittent splashes and occasional Class II waves, guiding adventurers through the towering 1500' walls of Glenwood Canyon before culminating in Glenwood Springs. Tailored for those seeking a serene yet visually stunning river excursion, this trip prioritizes relaxation, wildlife, and bird sighting opportunities. Indulge in the tranquil beauty of the river, providing the perfect escape for those yearning for a calming and picturesque river adventure.

Please Note: This trip is run in conjunction with the Half Day Rafting Adventure, allowing the adventure seekers within each group the opportunity to put-in at the Shoshone boat ramp to experience the thrill of the Shoshone Rapids.  During this 15 - 20 minutes period, the members of your groups that prefer the Mild & Scenic Half Day Raft Trip will shuttled downriver to Grizzly Creek where they can watch and await the arrival of the Half Day Adventures.  Upon rejoining at Grizzly Creek, groups will be reunited and will continue downriver on the same boat(s) for the remaining 10 miles.

This trips is perfect for those that would prefer to take in the beautiful scenery while enjoying a relaxing float through the Glenwood Canyon, free of the splashing and paddling that takes place when on the first two miles of the Half Day Adventure (Shoshone Rapids).  Often, this trip serves as a perfect balance for families and groups, as it allows each member to opt for the excitement of the Shoshone Rapids or the more relaxing float experienced downriver of the Grizzly Creek Boat Ramp.  Either way, Blue Sky Rafting ensures that all members of your group will remain together and on the same boat from Grizzly Creek and downriver.

This trip begins at the Grizzly Creek (Colorado River / Glenwood Canyon) and then continues downriver for approximately 10 miles (during average flows), ending at the Blue Sky Rafting private boat ramp in West Glenwood Springs.
