    What to Expect
    A popular spot for beginning and intermediate rafters, Bighorn Sheep Canyon is a relatively gentle stretch of the Arkansas River that winds through southern Colorado’s high desert landscape. Meet your friendly river guide at the Cañon City outpost, about a 1-hour drive southwest of Colorado Springs. Prepare for the ride by donning a life vest and helmet, and get an introduction to rafting essentials like safety and paddling techniques before transport to the launch site.
    Set off on the currents and navigate through exciting Class II and II whitewater rapids like Five Points, Double Dip and Spike Buck. Your guide will help with technique and ensure everyone's safety throughout the journey. On quieter stretches, enjoy the pristine desert scenery and look out for herds of wild bighorn sheep, the official state animal of Colorado.
    Take advantage of the opportunity to swimming splash income river pools during breaks from the rapids. After reaching the end of the 10-mile stretch, you'll be transported back to the outpost, where you can purchase souvenir photos to memorialize your journey.
    Come prepared with sunscreen, sunglasses and quick-drying clothes, as you're sure to get wet! No rafting experience is required, and children age 6 and over are welcome.

    Two things to note: One, I too looked askance at the rating to wonder how it could be so positive. Two, the recommendation to book ahead is valid. Our date was filled when we arrived, so if we did not have reservations we would not...More
