This was an excellent 6-mile adventure down Antietam Creek. We started with brunch - unique foods, friendly service. Mike, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable about the Battle of Antietam and prepped us for what we would see on the river. He knew the creek well and helped us navigate the mild rapids we experienced along the way. We're looking... More

Last summer (2012) I took my 2 granddaughters on the calm water tubing of the Shennandoah. They talked about it all year. This year we added their parents and other 2 grandparents. Enjoyable time by everyone. We go during the week just before school starts and there are no crowds at all. Because of the younger one's age we cannot... More

Definitely recommend this outfitters! Friendly staff, good location. Our raft guide, Chris, was very experienced, he knew exactly what he was doing, never a dull moment on the river. It makes the experience better when the guide knows the river and how to move the raft! So when you plan your next trip ask for Chris :) If you need... More

I took my teenage son and his friends white water rafting for his birthday today. It was a quick and easy ride from Montgomery County. It only took about 45 minutes to get there. The check in was efficient and we got underway as scheduled for a 10:00 am trip. Our guide Christopher C was terrific. He was very knowledgeable... More

Our familyl of four had a wonderful day on Antietam Creek. The guides especially "Larry the Tubing Guy" were very funny on the bus ride to the creek and back. The weather could not have been better. Lunch of fried chicken, salads and watermelon was a treat. The check in process was painless and very organized. This was our first... More

This is the "go-to" place for tubing in the area, complete with a courteous staff, reasonable prices and decent equipment. We have gone on the "mellow" tubing trip down the Shenandoah twice and enjoyed it very much - it is perfect for families with smaller children - but on our latest trip to Harpers Ferry, we went on the Class...

Stephanie our guide was great. Had full history of river and other local knowledge. Water was low, but still provided some fun rapids. Ask to surf a rapid! Only complaint is late arriving groups can delay everyone.

Rented some kayaks with friends at River & Trail last week, and enjoyed it very much. The staff was nice and really helpful, the rates were really good for being an hour outside of DC, and the kayaks were great. Would definitely be returning in the future and recommend!

Signed up for 5 adults and 5 kids for a 10:30 ride. Arrived @10am and then traveled by car to another spot to launch. Then another spot on bus to actually float. The water was high from recent rain so it was very slow and 2 of the kids nearly fell asleep. It seemed dangerous and we had only 2... More

I highly recommend the Mellow Float from R & T! Great family fun. My niece used all sorts of extra energy, swimming in the tube, out of the tube, kicking, spinning, etc. Meanwhile, I could chill out and just float along, enjoying the beautiful view and cool waters. Nora at the office was cheerful and helpful. Kyle was the guy... More
