Raft the River

Each year, RiversEdge West partners with Rimrock Adventures to offer a guided one-day float trip and dinner on the Colorado River to people of all ages.  
 
"Friendly people, great vibe, nice music, and food afterward in a beautiful location, and we learned new information about the river too!"
 
   
 
We typically spend about 1.5-2 hours on the water and stop along the riverbank to hear from guest speakers. These short talks from local river experts will give you a behind-the-scenes look at the restoration work happening along the river and may also include discussions about the tamarisk beetle, endangered fish, and wildlife. 
 
"The perfect package of fun, education, and first-hand experience on our river. Would recommend to anyone and everyone!"
 
 
After relaxing on the river you will arrive back to Rimrock Adventures for a delicious dinner donated by local restaurants such as Cafe Sol and Barons Bar and Grill; enjoy live music; drink beer, wine, and non alcoholic drinks from Copper Club Brewing Company and other local vendors; before topping the night off with a prize giveaway from local businesses such as Peach Street Distillers, Chelsea Nursery, Wet Dreams River Supply, The Gear Junction, REI, and Colorado Legacy Coffee. 
 
"Great food, beer, and music in an ideal setting. I have always enjoyed Tim and Richard and The Copper Club and here they were supporting the Raft the River on a beautiful day on the Colorado."
  
 
 
Hear what past attendees had to say:
"The food and rafting plus post rafting fun were outstanding. The event organization was stellar. Thank you!"
 
"The experience was both fun an enlightening. The event was well planned from beginning to end."
 
"I want to thank you for arranging the Raft the River trip!  It was certainly an educational trip!  I hope my brain can retain what I learned about the Colorado River, information pertaining to tamarisk trees, beetles, Russian olive trees, willows, plus other native and non-native plants and fish. Rimrock provided us with awesome navigators and food served in a beautiful location following the raft adventure. It was nice meeting people who are interested in our outdoor world along the Colorado River Valley."
 
 
 
Our 2020 date has not yet been set (it will likely take place the last Saturday of August) but keep an eye out from an announcement from us!
