    Family Float rafting trips in Buena Vista, Colorado


    Raft the Milk Run of the Arkansas River

    This scenic raft 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 1 & 2 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. Paddle along or choose to have your guide row, while you relax.
