Family Float rafting trips in Buena Vista, Colorado


Raft the Milk Run of the Arkansas River

This scenic Family Float rafting trip has mild rapids and stunning views of the Rocky Mountains. After a short van ride, meander four miles down the beautiful Arkansas River right back to River Runners. Along the way you’ll encounter small class one and two rapids, float under an old railroad trestle, and learn about the area’s history and geology. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for deer, raptors, waterfowl, and other wildlife. This trip floats right back to the Browns Canyon Riverside Grill, which is a great place to play in the sand, have lunch, and extend your time on the river. Paddle along or choose to have your guide row, while you relax.
