The trip begins with the Upper Rustic section of the Cache la Poudre River. This section offers whitewater that is seldom seen by commercial rafters, and contains amazing rapids like The White Mile, Chapel Bridge and many more. This section of river is sure to excite and work-up a real appetite. After a homemade deli-style lunch, the trip continues through the Lower Rustic Section of the Cache la Poudre. The majestic mountain scenery continues as the rapids build-up, making for an exhilarating afternoon of paddling.
In the evening of day one, we will set camp at a U.S.F.S. camp area in the canyon. The sites are maintained by the Forrest Service and provide flat tent areas, outdoor toilets, tables and access to the highway if necessary. You will set camp in a very scenic spot next to the river, get into comfortable warm clothes, and enjoy some great river talk around the camp fire while your guides prepare a truly gourmet camp dinner.
Coffee will be ready when you wake-up and eat another hearty meal for breakfast to prepare for the second day of epic whitewater. The morning of day two will finish the Lower Rustic section of the river, providing some great class IV rapids and stunning mountain views. After lunch, the trip finishes with the Plunge section of the Poudre River. This will be the most action packed part of the river and will provide guests with some real Colorado Rocky Mountain rafting. Big water and big fun! What a great way to finish off a trip that is sure to be the highlight of your summer!
