Elk River Canyon

The Elk River Canyon is a large volume class IV river with steep canyon walls of unique geology. This is home to the Elk Rivers wild ways, constricting its flow, they help form all of its exciting rapids. This is our most popular run no matter what the water levels – from May to September the Elk River Canyon delivers. It is a classic river run that has it all; exciting rapids, a wilderness setting and cliff jumping. Looking up you may be rewarded with sightings of big game animals and birds of prey. And with no roads or trails along this stretch of river the only way to experience it is by boat. On this stretch there is always another rapid around the next bend! There is a hike down a long set of stairs to get to the river – you can see photos in our photo gallery.

The intensity of the rapids varies with the change of seasons. May and June bring the spring snow melt and high water creating the biggest waves and most powerful rapids. Early July is a great time for first time rafters. There is lots of water still flowing, but warmer weather prevails. Mid July through August water levels are at their friendliest – a great time for families with adventurous children eight years and older who love water.

Bull River

In the spring when the snow melts and the rains come the Bull River changes from a small mountain river to a roaring whitewater run! This spring trip offered in May and June delivers all the thrill of great river running. Stunning mountain scenery steeped in history surrounds you as you eat waves paddling through an uninhabited river valley flowing through the Majestic Rocky Mountains. The excitement builds with each set of rapids to the climax in the lower canyon – an incredible crescendo of whitewater. The Lower Bull Canyon is one of the most sustained stretches of class IV water in the area.
