A great day float on the Colorado !
Aug 2021 • Family
We took the all day raft trip with Steve as our guide. There we’re only the four of us (2 adults and our two teenaged grandkids) on the adventure. And what an adventure it was! It truly could not have been better. Steve was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and a great companion. We learned so much about the area while floating or swimming down the beautiful and historic Colorado River. Safety was also number 1 with Steve. Amazing lunch provided at a beautiful spot to rest, jump in the river or hike to some old Native people sites. I would recommend this company for any river experiences.

Great experience if you are looking for a relaxed, low key float. We were able to call in the morning and get booked same day for 3hr float. Everyone there was so friendly and nice. Mason was our guide for the float and pretty awesome. Recommend if you are in the grand junction area. We came across cows at water, bald eagle and even an otter!

Fantastic float through river Ruby-Horsethief Canyon
Sep 2020
We booked the river float down through Ruby-Horsethief canyon with Rimrock Adventures and had an awesome time! Our guide was Josh and he was fantastic! He was incredibly knowledgeable about Grand Junction, Colorado and the Colorado river and gave us many fun and interesting stories during our float. He also did an excellent job of explaining the geology and topology of the area which was very interesting.

The trip itself was relaxing and beautiful with giant desert cliff faces on both both sides of the river. We saw eagles, coyotes and a few bighorn sheep during our trip as well. We took this trip in September so the river was very mellow and this truly was a "float", not a raft trip. Josh did the work in paddling along the river and when the river got really slow he fired up a small engine to motor us along a little faster so that we made it back home on time. I personally would've preferred some more excitement (bigger rapids, helping paddle, etc.), or to not have to use the engine, but I understand that Rimrock can't control the flowrate of the river, I'm sure this trip in the Spring time is a blast.

We stopped at the black rocks section of the river for lunch (included in price). It was a good spread of sandwiches with all the toppings you'd want, veggies, chips, drinks...not a "gourmet" lunch, but I was very pleased with the options available. We were able to swim and do some cliff jumping after lunch, Josh showed us a few spots and it was awesome!

Overall, I'd say that if you want to get up close and personal with the Colorado river and the beautiful natural landscape that Grand Junction has to offer, Josh and Rimrock Adventures are the way to go!

Our family really enjoyed the "Red Rock" ride
Aug 2020
We recently did a one-hour "Red Rock" dude ride at Rimrock and our family really enjoyed the experience. Leader Jade did a great job engaging our 8-year old in conversation and had him sitting on the second horse so she could keep an eye on him and remind him when to adjust his position in the saddle. She also took great photos of our group when we paused to rest the horses at the mid-point of the ride. Thanks Jade!

Great Family Outdoor Experience
Jul 2020 • Family
We had a great trip with our Kiwi guide "Brock." Lots of great sights, swimming was so refreshing, and he had great stories. Definitely a do-again. There were 4 of us (11 & 12 year old kids plus us).

Topnotch employees make an experience the best
Jun 2020
We rented a raft from Rimrock, and also had them shuttle one of our cars to Westwater. I can't say enough about their employees. From the office where we checked in, to the orientation of the boat, and then when we got out at the end. We were taking the boat back ourselves but the Rimrock employees that were there picking up other boats couldn't have been more helpful and friendly.
The raft came with everything we needed and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. It is amazing how much the people can make or break your experience, and even the folks that were checking in the equipment at the end were super friendly and helpful, even though they were out in 95 degree heat washing boats and putting equipment away.

What a great day!
Jul 2019
We chose a day of floating, and it was relaxing and so much fun! Our guides, Steve (call him Becky!) and Spencer were hilarious and so knowledgeable! And very serious about safety and treating the environment right (including where and where not to pee - and why). I'm not sure where they got such an amazing lunch spread, but it was perfect.. just a great day overall. Highly recommend for age 5+.

Nice ride, beautiful scenery
Aug 2019
We were very pleased with our 2 hour ride. Our wrangler was very familiar with each of the horses and their personalities and did a nice job of matching horses to each rider’s abilities. Throughout the ride she gave heads up on parts of the trail that might be a little more challenging as well as to make sure that we were all doing fine with our horses. Was a very pleasant ride.

Cross Country Family Trip 2019
Jul 2019 • Family
This was our very first horseback experience as a family. Our children had never ridden horses so they were looking forward to the experience. My husband and I were apprehensive about having the kids ride especially the one with a mild form of cerebral palsy, but Chanel was the best wrangler for the job! She put us at ease and gave great instructions to keep us safe. Thank you Chanel for the wonderful experience!!! <3

For those interested, the path was a winding road going up and down some steep areas but the horses were slow and easy to work with. The biggest struggle was keeping them from eating. :) Great trail, great view, great horses, and a great time!! Highly recommend!!

Amazing Float Trip to Ruby and Horsethief Canyons
Jul 2019 • Family
Steve guided us with humor and so many interesting facts about the area. The all day float trip included never ending scenery, blue herons, big horn sheep, and bald eagles. My favorite part was a hike to an amphitheater to see some Indian pictographs. It was an amazing day.
