Go on a rafting adventure and enjoy the morning on either a Royal Gorge Trip or a Bighorn Sheep Canyon trip. Plan to arrive early by 8 a.m. as the 1st raft trips tend to leave by 9 a.m. Keep in mind, there is paperwork to fill out and life vests, wetsuits, and helmets to hand out.
Go for a jeep tour. Discover Shelf Road, Skyline Drive, and learn about the dinosaurs. Don’t forget to take along some water.
Set up camp and start the campfire up for hamburgers.
Arrive at either 7 a.m. or 9 a.m. for an ATV Tour in the Texas Creek area, a great activity the entire family can enjoy. From the grandchildren to great grandparents, every age can participate in this outdoor adventure. Hear the Indian storie, see some interesting rock formations, and view the wildlife in the area.
Take a zipline tour. What a rush to fly across an open valley. This is not for the faint-hearted. Please note, you’ll have to walk and climb through this attraction.
This is the perfect time of day to take a segway tour around Canon City.
Take a train ride through the Royal Gorge. See the class IV rapids, wave to rafters as they pass you, and look up and see the Royal Gorge Bridge.
Horseback ride in the hills behind Canon City, where the peace and quiet will embrace you.
Head home and call in sick so you can rest up from the weekend and have time to plan your next fun adventure in the Royal Gorge Region.
