Bighorn Sheep Canyon on the Arkansas River is ideal for first-time rafters and the younger members of your party. This trip launches beneath the dramatic Cotopaxi cliffs at our convenient riverside base. We begin the trip in easy water to give us time to form a competent paddle crew (or passengers in an oar boat.)

After a delicious buffet lunch, we plunge into more demanding and technical rapids.
