The Numbers Full Day
This adventure features a day of constant, challenging whitewater within Granite Gorge and the Numbers Sections (Class IV/V) of the Arkansas River. This trip offers continuous, action-filled rafting with pour-overs and steep drops, with notable rapids such as House Rock and Frog Rock.
The Gorge offers similar rapids found in the Numbers such as Maytag and Triple Drop (aka Three Sisters) and the most famous, the Pine Creek Rapid (V), which is optional for our Class IV guests. Guides will assess each crew to determine whether they are up for the challenge. Guests always have the option to bypass the Pine Creek Rapid and continue their full day experience. Rapids and sections run are at the discretion of Lakota Guides and Arkansas Headwaters Recreational Area (AHRA).
This trip departs from our office near Buena Vista, CO, which is about a 2.5 hour drive from Glenwood Springs, up and over the beautiful Independence Pass. Although it is a bit longer drive, this section of river is well worth it for those looking for a serious adventure!
