The four of us rafted down Brown's Canyon. Our guide, Blitz, was very knowledgeable. Good pre-trip instructions. The first-timer in our group felt very safe and enjoyed every minute. Great trip!

My husband and I are experienced paddlers from Arkansas and he has run this river in a kayak many times so we weren't expecting much but it was so hot today that we opted for a cool alternative after a night of camping at Hecla Junction. We were awarded a spot on the raft of "Jack from Oregon". Despite our... More

We had a great 1/2 day trip through Brown's Canyon. Tyler R. Was our guide and he was not only a great guide as far as keeping us safe and giving us a great ride, but he was very educational and informative. I do wish they would have given a little better info on what to wear and what the... More

We took an all day Brown's Canyon trip with River Runners and couldn't have been happier with our choice. I'd never been white water rafting before and had a blast! If we would have had more time in the area, we would've immediately booked a Numbers trip with them as well. Our guide, Dan, was great. He was fun, told... More

We had the best time at River Runners!! Me (a 20 year old girl), my brother (16 year old), my dad (46) and my aunt (50) ALL enjoyed it! We did the afternoon half day trip, and it was incredible! Can't wait to go back - we'll definitely do an all day trip next time because we loved it so... More

We have floated through Browns Canyon on a half day trip before, but this time we did the full day trip. Strongly recommend the full day trip. Stopped for lunch and enjoyed the scenery. We even stopped to jump off some rock cliffs. Half day trips are in too much of a hurry and won't stop for anything. Our guide... More

Our guide, Slater, was knowledgeable and lots of fun. He worked hard to ensure we were all included and worked especially hard to make this a fun memory for our 9-year-old grandson.

Road a half day afternoon ride down Browns Canyon. Got lucky it didn't rain. More likely not to rain on the morning ride. It was me, my 13 year old son, and 10 year old daughter. All first timers from Minnesota. I was a little nervous taking my kids down class 3 rapids even though it was rated for 6... More
