Extended 2014 White Water Rafting Season with Mile Hi Rafting!
The 2014 season for white water rafting has been extended on the Arkansas River! With just a few weeks of summer left, come raft on the Arkansas River and enjoy one of the best white water rafting seasons yet! Mile Hi Rafting is offering rafting through early to mid September depending on the water levels. Bring the kids, let it be an end of summer adventure before school starts. There are trips available for every age and skill level.
The Arkansas River is recognized as one of the nation’s most popular location for whitewater rafting and kayaking. Only three hours south of Denver, it is the most commercially rafted river in the United States, and rightfully so! The wild and mild river flows 150 miles from Leadville, through the Sawatch mountain range, Colorado’s tallest mountains, thru Pueblo to the edge of Colorado’s plains. You will find class IV and V rapids to mild class II and III sections. The upper Arkansas River is the most popular for families. Some sections are so mild, you would have thought they were designed with families in mind. All rafting trips include the stunning scenery of the towering collegiate peaks in the background. September will be the perfect time for a rafting trip as the leaves will be changing colors, yet the temperature is still mild.
