Split Mountain Gorge one day trip was great. Fantastic guides and good lunch. We will use them again.

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 oarsman, but his wealth of knowledge about the geologic history of the area was impressive. A real jokester as well. Great trip for families as we had our kids (8 and 10) with us. And that lunch! Really great 'build your own sandwich' halfway along the trip, along with some time to relax and play in the river. I like how they took pains to keep the beach area clean by insisting all trash and food scraps were removed before we left. All in all a great day that you should really experience.

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 for kids and families!!!, and the GUIDES ARE WONDERFUL. So, one star off for the time spent off the river, four very enthusiastic stars for everything else. GO FOR IT! Well worth it, even with the logistical delays and what-not on shore.

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 rafts will. The lunch stop is well timed and the food is hearty: make your own sandwiches, fruit, and snacks. The guides are professional and fun. I would love to come back a do a longer trip in the spring.
