The 1/2 day raft trip was a lot of fun. They recently moved from Creede to South Fork but some of the river guides stayed on. The water was low so it wasn't as good as it could of been but still an enjoyable way to spend the afternoon.

We actually took our trip in July of 2008 while my Dad owned a home in Creede. It was the highlight of our trip because we were so blessed to have met Greg, THE mountain man himself.

Spent three hours kayaking down the Rio Grande and it was exhilarating. it is about a 12 mile journey down the river, depending on where they start. Truly a great way to see the river and the scenery.

Mountain Man Tours is located right in downtown Creede and, as they will tell you, they are the only guided raft tours in the area and also serve as the "rescue" crew for the river.
