TUMBLING RIVER RANCH’S WEDNESDAY WHITEWATER RAFTING EXCURSION
HOSTED BY WILDERNESS AWARE RAFTING
There are many factors to consider when choosing a white water rafting company. Wilderness Aware pride itself on the quality of staff , facilities and equipment.
Our Staff– whitewater rafting guides, office staff, drivers and managers are out to exceed your expectations each and every day. Our Management Team, including the owner, are involved in day to day operations to ensure that every person who rafts with us gets the best possible experience.
Our rafting trips on the Arkansas River have rapids equal to any. Exciting white water, spectacular views of Colorado’s tallest mountain range, and a delicious deli-style lunch prepared riverside make this trip a must for each family.
The trip we take is through Browns Canyon, America’s most popular whitewater rafting destination. This section is challenging to seasoned rafters, yet forgiving enough for first time rafters. This trip is considered family rafting and is geared for kids 7+ (water conditions may be higher in the early season). Most of the large rapids in Browns Canyon are followed by a calm pool of slow moving water allowing an opportunity to either catch a quick breath of fresh mountain air or take a picture of the unique granite rock formations set off against the clear blue Colorado sky.
Jason and Kelley Sikes
We spent a fabulous week in early June at TRR. The scenery, amazing staff,great food and fun activities created the perfect environment for our best vacation yet. The wranglers were knowledgeable and patient, which made even the young riders (and their moms) comfortable. The owners and staff were nothing short of amazing in every way--service, friendliness, engagement with children...there just are not enough good things to say.
President, Conlin Travel
At Conlin Travel, we book many family and multigenerational family vacations. I can say, without hesitation and to the person, families we sent to Tumbling River Ranch come back saying it was the best family vacation they have ever had. When children are happy, parents are happy and that’s guaranteed to happen at Tumbling River Ranch.
I wish I didn't have to leave! Tumbling River Ranch is such a special place. Our main focus was to get to ride while at TRR and we were taken on the most amazing rides I have ever been on. The scenery will forever be etched in my mind. The wranglers do an amazing job of taking care of all levels of riders and make the trail rides so fun as well as breathtaking. I highly recommend the overnight pack trip- it was a highlight! I could go on and on....I will just say it is a place you need to go and experience for yourself and you will be so happy you did. I hope to go back again!
Chief of Wilderness Stewardship, National Park Service
In September of 2016 I coordinated a 4 day wilderness stewardship training session at Tumbling River Ranch for 24 National Park Service personnel. Our group was extremely impressed with all aspects of TRR, including the conference faciliites, quality food, comfortable and economical lodging, friendly and competent staff, and Megan and Scott's hospitality and attention to sevice. The serene location at the foot of the Mount Evans Wilderness in the Colorado high country served as the perfect venue to meet our training objectives. I hope to host another training session at TRR someday in the future.
