What to expect

What is Rafting The Numbers Like?

The Numbers is located right at the headwaters of the Arkansas River. Thanks to this fresh snow melt, you’ll experience exhilaratingly cold waters on The Numbers rafting trip. On this fast and furious six-mile stretch of river, you’ll battle over half a dozen class IV rapids. Paddle so hard your knuckles turn white as you avoid obstacles through rapid #4. Then drop down what feels like a small waterfall in rapid #5, one of the most fun class IV rapids around! The Numbers white water rafting trips are known to leave rafters shaking with exhilaration.

A trip rafting The Numbers is not for those looking for a relaxing float down the river, and it’s best enjoyed early in the summer when the river is running high and fast. If you love extreme, world-class rapids, this is the trip for you. You’re likely to pass bighorn sheep, deer, and other quintessential Colorado wildlife – but with how fast you’ll be going, you may miss them! Add on the Narrows section of the river for a full-day experience where you can take in more of the rugged Colorado beauty. But don’t worry – you’ll still find this section fast-paced and challenging.
