The Numbers Rafting Trip + Mountaintop Zipline

Numbers Rafting

Have an action-packed day with two of Colorado’s favorite summer mountain activities! Start your morning off with the notorious section of the Arkansas River known as The Numbers. The Numbers rafting offers narrow channels, steep drops, and technical maneuverings as you travel through boulder-strewn canyons and gorgeous valleys, makes this rafting trip one to remember! With the snowcapped mountains of the Collegiate Peaks in the distance, the area’s picturesque views are sure to blow you away.

This section of the Arkansas River got its name in the late 1800s by local miners who viewed the rapids as non-navigable landmarks. They were so intimidated that they just numbered the rapids instead of naming them. If you are an experienced rafter looking to take it to the next level or an adventurous beginner up for a new challenge, the Numbers rafting trips are for you!

The Numbers have been described as a quintessential Class III-V river rafting trip. It’s Arkansas River white water rafting at its finest. It is famous for its non-stop white water action and steep drops that will give you a great adrenaline rush to start your day.

Lunch Time

Once you’re thoroughly drenched we’ll take a short break for lunch before speeding through the trees on a zipline tour. You’ll stop for a delicious lunch to refuel and rest on the river/at the outpost before you launch into the pulse pounding zipline tour which will take you high above the ground and sail you through the air at speeds of up to 30 mph.

Soar Through the Trees

Our zip line tours carry you through densely wooded areas and by massive rocky mountain faces that litter our expansive Gold Camp property as you zip from cliff to cliff, you will be amazed at how beautiful the snow-capped mountain peaks and Arkansas River are from your very own aerial view.

Total package cost: $183 per person
