Take a river ride during your stay with us! Just about 1 hour from Wild Horse Inn, you can experience a whitewater adventure on a section of the Colorado River. You can take a moderate trip rated Class II or III, or for more experienced rafters, take a half or full day trip. Clear Creek is another place to try your skills – bigger waves and more challenging river terrain.
The local rafting companies normally have dry bags available for you to put your gear into. Flip-flops and sandals most likely will end up floating down the river, so wear water shoes, strap-on sandals or sneakers. Many outfitters also provide lunches – ask about that option if you’re looking at a longer day trip.
