Typical Daykeyboard_double_arrow_up
Full day trips check into our office in Canon City at 8:30 A.M. Most full day trips on the Arkansas are building trips, starting out milder and working your way up to more intense whitewater. The Bighorn Sheep Canyon trip begins in Class II water in the morning a stop for lunch and the afternoon moves into Class III and III+ water. The Royal Gorge full day begins the day with Class III water, stops for lunch and actually enters the Gorge after lunch, finshing in Class IV to V water.
