Welcome to Tombstone

Most boomtowns went bust, but Tombstone declared itself 'Too Tough to Die.' Tourism was the new silver and as the Old West became en vogue, Tombstone didn't even have to reconstruct its past – by 1962 the entire town was a National Historic Landmark. Yes, it's a tourist trap; but a delightful one and a fun place to find out how the West was truly won.

Glenwood Springs Half-Day Rafting Trip

By far our most popular trip, this 3 hour rafting trip meets at our river front facility. Heading up river about 9 miles to the Shoshone Rapids in Glenwood Canyon on the Colorado River, we get off to an exciting start as we navigate the class III-IV rapids including The Wall, Tombstone, Maneater, Superstition, and many more. The river gradually begins to mellow out and your guide will educate you on the incredible history of Glenwood Canyon and the Colorado River. At lower flows, natural hot springs flow right into the river and we can stop and soak. Your trip will end right back at our private river ramp at our facility, where you can walk from the raft to a warm shower, to your car and belongings, and immediately view photos from your trip.
