The Most Scenic 1-Day Raft Trip in the West? Opinions are: Split
Just ask the Original River Runners
Split Mountain Gorge offers one of the best short whitewater rafting trips in Utah. The rafting is exciting, but of intermediate (Class III) difficulty, so novice rafters, families and children age six and above can join in the fun. Zooming through rapids like Moonshine, SOB and Schoolboy is exhilarating and full of splashes. There are four big rapids and many other smaller ones where you will be blasting through waves and shooting through narrow chutes. Read more...

This is a popular half or full-day trip. In eight miles, there is a series of several class three rapids. There is enough whitewater to guarantee thrills, but not so much as to overwhelm. This can be a fun one-day trip for experienced rafters, or provide a great introduction for first-timers. Lunch is provided on full-day trips; snacks may be provided on ½-day trips.
Multi-day trips are not run down Split Mountain.
Split Mountain is a great family trip! Package it with a trip to Dinosaur National Monument, and the entire family is sure to be pleased. After hiking through the monument, experience it on raft; your legs will appreciate the break!
This is the perfect addition to a group or corporate trip. The setting in Dinosaur National Park, the thrill of rapids, plus the short timeframe, help to make this an ideal addition to any corporate trip or family reunion.
