Why the name 8 Mile Bar & Grill?

Excellent question! When Echo Canyon River Expeditions got its start in 1978, the original owners, the Burches, purchased the current property which included the 8 Mile General Store. The Store was operated by the Dixon family who sold gold panning, hunting and fishing supplies and miscellaneous other Colorado 'curios'. The original store, now our retail store and guest check-in area, was built with the old timbers used as bridge planks on the famous Royal Gorge Bridge! The next time you're browsing our retail store look up at the old bridge plank-lined ceiling and you'll see silver paint drips; those drips came from way back when bridge workers painted the high tension cables above the planks of the bridge below.

When Andy Neinas purchased Echo Canyon some 10 years ago, he brought the same passion for preserving history. The expansion of Echo Canyon was based around the original 8 Mile General Store building and maintaining that same old-west look and feel which makes us who we are today.
