Beginner trips are a great way to enjoy some family time in the beautiful Colorado mountain air. You’ll still get splashy and experience rapids that are recommended for ages 5 and up. If you’re looking for enjoying the scenery more than adventuring through the rapids, the Bighorn Sheep Canyon in Cañon City and the Beginner trip in Idaho Springs are just what you need!
The river is gentle and forgiving, with just enough excitement to captivate a young child and keep an adult’s interest. Most of the time, the whitewater is more “riffle” than “rapid,” allowing lots of time for merriment.
