Colorado River – Youth Rafting Day Trips

Just outside of Moab, beneath the green slopes of the La Sal Mountains, the Colorado River flows through the kind of red rock scenery many people will recognize from Hollywood’s classic Western movies. The Fisher Towers preside over a 14-mile stretch of gentle class I and II rapids, the perfect setting for youth groups, Scouts, church groups, and anyone else looking for an easy introduction to river rafting! Near Arches and Canyonlands national parks, and close to all the amenities of Moab, the Colorado River Daily is a perfect complement to any desert exploration.



  • Just outside Moab, Utah, for easy access
  • A popular choice for Scout and church groups
  • Spend a day playing on the river—great for inflatable kayaks
  • Lunch served with amazing views of Fisher Towers and the La Sal Mountains

One of the advantages of a river trip is the flexibility of the daily itinerary.

It can vary widely from one trip to the next based on group desires, weather, and other unpredictable elements.

Typical Itinerary

We meet on the South side of the Colorado River Bridge, on Highway 191, North end of Moab at 10:00 a.m. (Mountain Time). There we will continue down river about 16 miles, stopping for lunch along the way.

Put in is at Hittle Bottom and take-out at mile 10 1/2.

The typical itineraries below illustrate a 1-day trip on the Colorado River.

We meet at Hittle Bottom, mile marker 23 (put-in) at 10:00 am. You can reach Hittle Bottom by taking State Hwy 128 east along the Colorado River (Junction between 128 and Highway 191 near Colorado River Bridge, north of Moab, Utah). It is 23 miles from the junction. H.E. will shuttle vehicle drivers back to their cars at the end of the trip.
