Whitewater Adventure

Unsurpassed for its natural beauty, the glacier carved Taylor Canyon widens at Harmel's and then proceeds, at slower speed, for ten more miles before meeting the East River forming the headwaters of the mighty Gunnison River.

Upper Taylor: Deluxe Class III+

Class 3 RapidsThe rafting van picks you up right here 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 the longest, most exhilarating whitewater experience offered on the Taylor River. Characterized by great riffles and whitewater chutes, both safe and exciting.  The same van will drop you back off at the rec room so if you wanted to bring a towel to dry off you can leave it in the vehicle.

Lower Taylor: Deluxe Class I-II (scenic float)

RaftingSlower 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.  You will be dropped off at the rec room where you were picked up, however, we may use a different vehicle so don't leave any belongings in the van.

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.
