Activity Information

The Cache La Poudre River is the closest raftable river to Estes Park. We offer trips up to three times daily, with transportation from the Estes Park High School. We'll drive you through the Big Thompson Canyon on the way to the river. The canyon was devastated by the September 2013 floods you saw on the national news. You will see first hand how this area has changed forever. The Cache La Poudre River is generally a rapids trip but it's also good for families and beginners. Water levels and speed change dramatically on this river throughout the season. Generally it runs a strong Class III (some sections could be considered Class IV) in May/June, Class III in July and a technical Class III (more rocks to dodge) in August. Each season is different depending on winter snowfall levels, air temperatures, rainfall and water released from reservoirs. This is our best attempt to describe a river that changes dramatically from season to season, and from day to day within each season.
