One of the most amazing multi-day and day trips in the nation, the Upper Animas River, is continuous class 4 and class 5 whitewater. Choose between the overnight camping trip and the section trips which can be done in one day.
Your one-hour rapid thrills trip has larger whitewater with more continuous, fun rapids ranging from Class II to III. This trip is fun for all ages at most water levels.
