Each August, RiversEdge West partners with Rimrock Adventures to offer a guided one-day float trip and brunch on the Colorado River. 

Thank you to everyone that joined us on August 19th for our favorite day of the summer! 50 attendees explored the beauty of the Colorado Rivers with us while supporting a great cause at our 2023 Raft the River fundraiser.

We launched from Rimrock Adventures in Fruita, CO, and took out at the Loma Boat Ramp. The river float trip offered a unique opportunity to explore the natural beauty of the Colorado River while contributing to its restoration. Our expert guides accompanied attendees, and offered insights into the vital work of riverside restoration in the Grand Valley.

Following the float, we indulged in a brunch catered by Cafe Sol, and enjoyed bloody marys and mimosas while mingling with fellow river enthusiasts. We raised a glass to the success of our mission and everyone had a chance to win prizes at Rimrock Adventure's charming riverside venue. 

Our next Raft the River trip will take place in late August 2024 - stay tuned for more details!

The perfect package of fun, education, and first-hand experience on our river. Would recommend to anyone and everyone!

Friendly people, great vibe, nice music, and food afterward in a beautiful location, and we learned new information about the river too!

Great food, beer, and music in an ideal setting. I have always enjoyed Tim and Richard and The Copper Club and here they were supporting the Raft the River on a beautiful day on the Colorado.

The food and rafting plus post rafting fun were outstanding. The event organization was stellar. Thank you!

The experience was both fun and enlightening. The event was well planned from beginning to end.

I want to thank you for arranging the Raft the River trip!  It was certainly an educational trip!  I hope my brain can retain what I learned about the Colorado River, information pertaining to tamarisk trees, beetles, Russian olive trees, willows, plus other native and non-native plants and fish. Rimrock provided us with awesome navigators and food served in a beautiful location following the raft adventure. It was nice meeting people who are interested in our outdoor world along the Colorado River Valley.
