We went on 8/30/14 and our guide was Robby, aka "Captain America." Robby was great and did a wonderful job! He was an excellent guide and a great conversationalist! He had great stories and was very knowledgeable about the area. We worked well together and he kept us entertained the whole trip! Would absolutely recommend and will be back in... More

We went white water rafting on Labor Day weekend with two guides from river and trail. It was our whole family with 4 teenagers, a couple of young adults, two young feeling :) parents and a 9 year old. They accommodated all of us and every age and experience level had an absolute blast. David has over 40 years of... More

My wife and I went rafting and really had a great time. We were able to see the sights and have fun doing it. Great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

We went on the beginner white water rafting trip down the Potomac. It was a ton of fun. They have a great set up down there and all the guides that we came across were very pleasant and funny and helpful. We had Tim as our actual guide and he was great as well. Very chill, had some good jokes,... More

My 13-year old daughter and I went whitewater rafting with Maury as our guide and had an excellent time! We are true beginners and were worried we would fall out of the boat, but we never felt remotely unsafe. Maury was very knowledgeable about the river and the rich Civil War history of the area, which made for an informative... More

Thanks to Brian for being a great guide! Staff all seemed knowledgeable and encouraged having a good time. Scenery was amazing and there was a lot of wildlife to make the trip more memorable.

I recently took my sixth grade classes to white water raft with River and Trail Outfitters and we had a great time; the guides were funny and really good with the kids. We felt extremely safe and very prepared for our trip!

We rented kayaks under their park and paddle. I would not rent the kayaks again unless you enjoy open smooth paddling up and down the river without any rapids. However their tube floating down the same part of the river was enjoyable. The number of young people and families account for much of their business. For a nice enjoyable float,... More

Mike and Maury of River and Trail Outfitters are awesome! Energetic, knowledgeable, witty, professional, and most endearing...very passionate about rivers. A leisurely sunset paddle down the Potomac was beautiful. I'd send a pic, but it just doesn't do it justice. My kids (ages 8,10, and 13) and I were back for our second trip and can't wait to see you... More
