We booked the 1/2 day South Canyon. Ryan and Molly were both very friendly and accommodating. Ryan was our guide, and Molly helped us get ready, took pictures and picked us up in the van at the end of the trip. On the river, Ryan was great with my kids, and he ensured that they enjoyed their experience. We definitely... More

I chose Up the Creek because they could accomadate our large group. Ryan suggested that we utilize their "Team Building Adventure" package. The experience was phenomenal. We did an assortment of activities in and out of the raft. We felt extremely safe and confident with our guides. I cannot thank Ryan and his team enough for this one of a... More

Not only is it owned by locals, but it's a smaller business with amazing prices. Best prices around! The rafting trip was so fun and perfect river for our 10 year old on the trip. Our guide was great and really helped us through everything. I just wish we would've done a longer trip

My kids have never been river rafting below, after emailing them they suggested the Upper Roaring Fork River. Which was perfect for my three kids (13, 11, and 9). Had fun putting them in front of boat. Was very happy had a great trip. Will come back next year.

We had a great first rafting trip with Up The Creek Rafting. After reading through all the reviews on different companies we decided to support a smaller company. We were greeted with friendly smiles. We felt like we were taking a little trip with friends rather than being herded onto a big bus. Our guide was Ryan and he was... More

My grandson and I had a wonderful 12-mile trip down the Roaring Fork with a very knowledgeable and personable guide. She was very experienced and we felt very safe throughout the trip. It was perfect on the river and my 11-year old grandson was thrilled. Better yet, it was just the two of us so it was especially nice and... More

My sister and brother in law were visiting us here in Colorado and wanted to try a river rafting trip. I chose Up the Creek Rafting for a smaller more personal experience and I was not disappointed. Molly guided our trip which consisted of just the four of us and Molly. No time wasted on large groups/buses and waiting for... More

We visited Glenwood Springs recently on our family trip and wanted to try white water rafting. We have a 8 and a 10 year old so wanted to go on a trip that would provide rapids, but would not be dangerous for the kids. Molly was our guide and did a great job! There was enough excitement to keep the... More

I have been rafting before, but my wife, 9 yo and almost 5 yo never had. Molly, one of the owners, made their first rafting experience fantastic. It started with a call the day before to let us know a group of 20 was booked at the same time as us and offering to let us go by ourselves later... More
