The Gunnison River headwaters start in the highest reaches of the county with the same name, cascading down from the mountains and finding its’ way to the Blue Mesa Reservoir – the largest body of water in the State of Colorado! The Upper Gunnison flows through green pastures and groves of cottonwood trees, at one point cruising by ancient volcanic rock formations soaring straight out of the river high into the sky! Wildlife is abundant, as the river is part of a large ecosystem that sustains many species of birds, fish, small mammals and large. A blue heron rookery populates a turn on the lower stretch of the river.
This is a great family trip for all ages, and a wonderful first time rafting experience! Easy waves, we move along quickly enough to have a constant change of scenery. After lunch we enjoy a little action as we navigate the waves in the Gunnison Whitewater Park and pass by the beach atmosphere of the park.
This trip starts at 9:00 or 1:30 at our Gunnison Office. Children should be at least 3 years old for a float trip.
