THE GLENWOOD CANYON RIVER RAFTING EXPERIENCE

GLENWOOD SPRINGS SCENIC RAFTING & WHITEWATER ADVENTURES

Glenwood Springs, nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, is a haven for families and adventure seekers alike. Amid its diverse offerings, one standout experience awaits – the exhilarating journey of rafting through Glenwood Canyon on the Colorado River with Hanging Lake Adventure Co-op and their rafting partners, Glenwood Canyon Rafting.

The adventure kicks off at Hanging Lake Adventure Co-op, conveniently situated in downtown Glenwood Springs, just a few blocks away from the Glenwood Hot Springs Pool and Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park. Here, eager rafters gear up for the river, receiving all the essentials for last-minute preparation. As you equip yourself and absorb the safety briefing from seasoned guides, anticipation builds for the exciting journey ahead. Glenwood Canyon, with its towering cliffs and breathtaking scenery, sets the stage for an unforgettable rafting expedition.

The Colorado River in this region offers a mix of gentle stretches and adrenaline-pumping rapids, catering to both novice and seasoned rafters. Most Half Day Rafting Adventures commence at the Shoshone boat ramp, where an exhilarating stretch of rapids, including Entrance Exam, the Wall, and Tombstone, awaits your guide and crew.

A notable highlight of this adventure is the proximity to the renowned Glenwood Canyon Bike Trail, running parallel to the Colorado River and passing the Hanging Lake Trailhead. Rafters often catch glimpses of bikers along the trail, fostering a unique connection between those on water and those on land.

The refreshing waters of the Colorado River provide a welcome contrast to the rugged canyon walls. Rafters are treated to panoramic views of the canyon’s geological wonders, including towering cliffs, lush vegetation, and occasional sightings of bighorn sheep navigating the rocky terrain.

For those seeking a more relaxed experience, the Mild & Scenic Half Rafting Trip is ideal. Starting at the Grizzly Creek Put-in (1.5 miles downriver of Shoshone), it offers opportunities to float gently along the river, absorbing the natural beauty of the surroundings. Along the way, you’ll pass the famous hot springs lining the Colorado River banks and the adventure hub of Glenwood Springs, Colorado.

As the rafting expedition concludes, participants are left with a sense of accomplishment and a treasure trove of memories. Whether you’re a nature enthusiast, an adventure seeker, or someone looking to escape the ordinary, rafting through Glenwood Canyon on the Colorado River with Hanging Lake Adventure Co-op promises an unforgettable experience in the heart of Colorado’s wilderness.
