The River for Everyone

Whether you’ve never been rafting or you’ve been down Class V whitewater, the Roaring Fork River has something for everyone!

Starting near the headwaters, Slaughterhouse Falls is a breathtaking section of Class IV whitewater. With wave trains, boulder navigating and a 4-foot drop, this section of river will quench your thirst for adventure!! 

The Upper Roaring Fork, just 20 minutes from Aspen, is a wonderful section for people wanting fun, splashy rapids. If you have a family full of thrill seekers but they’re not quite old enough for Slaughterhouse, than this exciting stretch of Class III whitewater is the section for you!!

The Lower Roaring Fork is perfect for young children and a great intro to whitewater rafting. You can sit back and relax while the guide tells you about the history of the Roaring Fork Valley as well as the flora and fauna. This Class II section flows down to Glenwood Springs and ends in the Colorado River!

So whether you’re looking for big drops or a calm, relaxing float Elk Mountain Expeditions has the trip for you
