Did the 3-day/2-night Gates of Lodore Trip in August 2013 with my Dad, brother-in-law and 8 year-old niece. All of us had a great time. The guides were fonts of information about the history and geology of the area. They created a safe, collegial atmosphere and got us all down the rapids safely in the smaller 1 and 2-person floaters... More

We took the one-day Split Mountain trip last August. Don Hatch puts on a really entertaining show and it is a day we will remember for a long time. We really like how they added the petroglyph tour at the beginning of the trip, before we got in the river. Our guide on the river was not only a great... More

Did I spell that right? We went on the "day trip" though Split Mountain, but it's more like a half-day trip on the river, with the rest of the time spent in transit or on a quick visit to some interesting petroglyphs. If you are an experienced rafter, this trip will be too tame. That said, it's a GREAT experience... More

I went on the one day Split Mountain rafting trip on August 16th. During this time of the year, the water flow is relatively low and most of the rapids were class 2. This trip is really for enjoying the beautiful scenery and getting wet. If the class 2 rapids don't get you soaked then the water fights between the... More

Some things to know about the Split Mountain day trip with OARS/Don Hatch. You don't go rafting right away. You start out with a 45 minute bus ride to petroglyphs- fun, but the movie shown on the website makes it seems as if this excusion is part of a shore visit during rafting. Rafting doesn't get starting until mid-morning. The... More

We took two one-day river trips on the Green River: Flaming Gorge just downriver of Flaming Gorge Dam, and Split Mountain Gorge in Dinosaur National Monument. Impressed with the professionalism of the entire operation. River guides are well trained and customer oriented, safety is a number one priority, and last but not least the scenery and river are beautiful. The... More

We did the split mountain day tour. Our guides were great. It was our first time river rafting and it felt safe yet fun and thrilling. The stop a the petrogylphs was an added bonus.
