What to expect
A popular spot for beginner 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, just 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 helps 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 are 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 six and over are welcome.

We had a great experience with our guide Anna throughout our time on the river! She really made the experience comfortable and was very knowledgeable about rafting as well as the history of the area. I would recommend this company to everyone!!

Fun for all ages!
Jul 2021 • Family
The Lost Paddle crew was fun and professional from the start. Anna was our guide, and she was awesome; super knowledgable about the river, and she made this anxious Mama feel at ease. The memory of the bus’s horn getting stuck on the way back to the shop will always make me giggle 🤣 I have a little video of that if y’all ever want me to send it to you. We’ll be back!

Had a blast with Lost Paddle!
Jul 2021 • Couples
Our first ever whitewater rafting trip was amazing! Lost Paddle was top notch and our guide Frank made our experience so memorable. The entire staff was fun, professional and extremely knowledgeable. We took my mother with us on this trip and I'll admit that both her and I were a tad nervous going into this. Frank put our nerves at ease and made the journey down the Arkansas river a blast! We felt safe and in good hands. We would do it again but only with Lost Paddle Rafting! Thank you Frank and team!

It was great!
Our guide, Matt, obviously had a lot of experience doing this and it made my family and me feel very comfortable in his care. The tour had class II and III rapids. I was worried it would be boring, but it was the perfect mix of comfort and exhilaration.

Fun Fantastic Float!
Jul 2021 • Family
We had a fantastic experience with Lost Paddle Rafting! They took great care of us and our guide Will was entertaining and knowledgeable. In particular, he was really attentive to my 7 year old son and gave him a lot of encouragement since it was his first time rafting. Will made enough of a positive impact on my son that as we left CO on I70, according to my son, every raft we saw had Will as the guide!

The whole company treats like you matter and safety is very important to them. Will, Anna, and Frank, the guides who were with us for our trip were experienced and gave great instructions. We will be in CO next summer snd plan to do another trip with them.

The water level was a little low due to minimal snowfall, but that didn't stop us from having fun. The guides were a blast to joke with and they really knew their stuff. I felt safe the whole time.
