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

My boyfriend and I had never been white water rafting before, but we knew when visiting Colorado that we wanted to give it a shot. We chose "Up the Creek" as we love to support small businesses, and decided on Slaughterhouse falls Class IV rapids. Of course we were a little nervous (never white water rafted before) but the trip... More

Slaughterhouse Falls is a fun technical river. For those looking for the ultimate Colorado adventure this raft trip sure is the place, as we drop over a 6ft waterfall! Goes to show as long as your healthy, happy, and somewhat athletic, even a beginner can have the time of their lives! Thanks so much for your candid comments. More

My wife and I did the Upper Fork of the Roaring Fork River half day trip (there were five kids on our trip with another family). We were originally scheduled to do a different section but a sudden illness kept us from making the trip. Ryan and Molly worked with us to reschedule for a couple of days later and... More

Thank you so much for your kind words. We will always keep our trips small, our customer to guide ratio never exceeds 7:1, our average ratio is 3:1. This isn't a cattle drive, its your adventure. More

We loved the the first rafting on the lower fork, but our youngest asked for MORE rapids and splashes! So we booked another trip on the upper fork before we went back home. We appreciate small businesses and being treated special by the company! Highly recommend Up the Creek Rafting!

Krista we had soo much fun with your family. Glad you made the time to come back through Glenwood Springs just to see the river again with us. I hope your family enjoys the memories on the river this vacation for years to come! More

It was our first trip to Colorado as a family and a "bucket list" item was to white water raft. Because of our children, ages 9 & 11, we selected a beginner trip, and couldn't have been happier! Our guide was terrific - knowledgeable, friendly, and not overbearing. The smiles on everyone's faces and the fact our youngest fell asleep... More

Thanks for your kind words Kristen. If your looking to up the ante next time I would recommend the Upper Roaring Fork River. It has multiple Class III+ rapids that continue throughout the trip. More

My family and I had an awesome time on the river with Stacy as our guide. The water was swift, but we had complete confidence in our guides ability. He is truly a professional. Our 11 year old grandson told us this river trip was the highlight of his visit. Thank you Up the Creek for a great time.

Very professional and experienced staff. With it being a smaller company, they not only customized our experience (or lack or experience on the raft), but gave us time on two rivers, while avoiding the large crowds of nearby mass rafting companies. We went with 4 kids, none of whom had ever rafted, and not only did they love the experience... More

Adding a kayak to your trip is a smart move, especially with teenagers! Getting to trade in and out with others on the raft makes it fun, and entertaining for everyone. Thank You for your business and most of all for your candid comments. More
