Lower Eagle River Rafting
Family Whitewater Rafting Near Vail
A float down the Lower Eagle River in Colorado is an ecological transformation in reality. As you move downstream, the aspen and spruce, ptarmigan and elk, cliffs and cascades of the high country give way to the cactus and juniper, lizards and pronghorn, mesas and sunshine of the high desert. The raging deluge of the upstream waters mellows to Class II/III rapids. Trestle, Interstate and Dead Cow Rapids keep the excitement level high, adding Class III+ action to the mix. This 17 mile trip is perfect for anyone interested in exploring the diversity of Colorado’s western slope.
