Unsurpassed for its natural beauty, the glacier carved Taylor Canyon widens at Harmel's and then proceeds, at slower speed, for seven more miles before meeting the East River forming the headwaters of the mighty Gunnison River.
Upper Taylor: Deluxe Class III+
The rafting van picks you up at Harmel's at the office/rec lounge to take you to the put-in a few miles upstream. The Upper Taylor trip is a deluxe class III+ adventure is an exhilarating whitewater experience right here in the canyon. Characterized by great riffles and whitewater chutes, both safe and exciting.
Lower Taylor: Deluxe Class I-II (scenic float)
Slower in river speed, the Lower Taylor trip still boasts exciting whitewater rapids with nice rolling chutes. Perfect for the whole family, sightseers, and younger children.
There will be professional photographers taking action shots of your raft going through some of the rapids for both the Upper Taylor and the Lower Taylor trips. You can view the photos online a bit later on in the day. You are by no means obligated to purchase these photos. But, we bet you'll want to simply for the bragging rights!
Harmel's rafts two times per day, seven days per week: 9:00am and 1:00pm. Rain or Shine.
