Gates of Lodore Rafting 4 Day Trip
Dinosaur National Monument
About This Trip
See the spot often credited with the birth of the modern American environmental movement. This pristine canyon system was once in danger of disappearing beneath the watery depths of a major reservoir. Throughout the 1950s, conservation groups fought against a proposed dam at Echo Park that would have forever drowned both Yampa and Lodore canyons
Public exposure to the area thru early commercial river rafting trips on the Green and Yampa rivers helped to inspire the movement that saved Dinosaur. Many of those who floated the rivers were forever motivated to partake in the struggle to preserve them for future generations. Their eventual success brought Dinosaur National Monument to the attention of the country and helped kick-start the nascent American environmental movement. We have the early river runners of Dinosaur National Monument to thank for the protection many of America’s wildest places now enjoy!
Several challenging rapids will keep your excitement up, with plenty of class II & III rapids to keep you cool. Expect lush campsites with wonderful sandy beaches each night. Gates of 4-day Lodore Raft trips starting at $945.00
Our rafts will range from 18 – 33 feet depending on water flows during the time of the trip. Challenge rapids on optional inflatable kayaks if you desire.
