Dowd Chute Rafting

Adventure Overview

This is it, a pure class IV+ whitewater adventure, and an early-season favorite of our guides! If you’re looking for whitewater because you crave a challenge, this is your trip. Dowd Chute on the high-altitude, alpine Eagle River features continuous rapids and lots of paddling! The narrow Dowd Chute Rapid extends nearly a quarter of a mile and offers a thrilling elevation drop, so get ready to be splashed.

Because this is a physically challenging section, we recommend previous rafting experience. The Eagle has a limited season (May – early July), so don’t miss out!

Just a short 45-minute drive from downtown Glenwood Springs.
