Step into the sandals of the life of raft guide! Join Echo Canyon River Expeditions for our 2 or 3 Day Average Joe & Jane Guide School and learn first hand what it takes to be a raft guide on the Arkansas River. With our highly trained and patient Senior Guide Instructors, we'll teach you the basics of reading river currents, paddle boat guiding, and rescue skills. In controlled training scenarios we'll practice swift water crossings, teach you how to swim in whitewater and rescue your fellow crew members.

To maximize your guiding time we’ll paddle class II and III whitewater for the majority of river miles we cover. But don’t worry; we’ll finish off the trip with a bang as your Guide Instructor takes the helm to show you how to guide the big class IV rapids in the famous Royal Gorge.

Enjoy beautiful river side camps and hearty meals freshly prepared by your Guide Instructors. Feel free to pitch in and help with dinner, or warm your feet by the fire if you prefer. All wetsuit gear, tents and sleeping bags are included in our Average Joe & Jane Guide School. Swimming ability and a sense of adventure is a must for this trip! Minimum age depends on water levels; no children please. This is NOT a commercial guide training program; rather, it is a fun few days which includes the fun exciting aspects of a guide’s daily job.

The Dolores River in Colorado is regarded as one of the most unique and pristine river environments in the country. This is a fantastic spring trip due to early snow run-off in warm southwestern Colorado. On its journey from the San Juan Mountains to the Colorado River, the Dolores River winds through isolated canyons, all unique and vastly different in appearance. Explore two consecutive canyons of the Dolores River with Echo Canyon this Spring.

Descend through towering ponderosa pines, thick piñon and juniper forests and brightly colored sandstone cliffs. We stop for a hike to an ancient Anasazi granary high on a cliff. Pass by several incredible groves of box elders with their new brilliant green leaves. Then the river steepens and suddenly drops into the notorious Snaggletooth Rapid, a quarter mile of frothing challenge. You can choose to challenge the rapid or walk around after scouting. The exhilarating rapids of 3-Mile Rapid are a rafter's delight. Alternating between quiet, peaceful calm and long continuous rapids, the Dolores continues to wind through giant boulders and steep cliffs. We often lunch at the trail head to the long-lost Cowboy Cave. The river soon calms and canyon walls lessen as we approach Slickrock, the juncture between Ponderosa Gorge and Slickrock Canyon.

The Dolores River in Colorado is regarded as one of the most unique and pristine river environments in the country. This is a fantastic spring trip due to early snow run-off in warm southwestern Colorado. On its journey from the San Juan Mountains to the Colorado River, the Dolores River winds through isolated canyons, all unique and vastly different in appearance. Explore two consecutive canyons of the Dolores River with Echo Canyon this Spring.

This 51-mile journey descends into Little Glen Canyon, flows through Big Gypsum Valley, and into the deepest canyon on the Dolores River, Slickrock Canyon. Float beneath 1,200 foot sandstone cliffs of breath- taking variety and color. The water here is fast, but of moderate difficulty with only a few rapids to interrupt the peaceful flow of the current.

Slickrock Canyon is perfect for quiet floating, side hikes, inflatable kayaking (we provide), and unwinding from the pressures of life. We will see ancient Indian artwork, hike to the fossilized dinosaur prints, and explore picturesque side canyons.
