The outdoors is a great equalizer, and its challenges will provide you with an opportunity for self-exploration, building self-confidence, and increasing independence. We design our trips to provide you with an opportunity to challenge yourself physically and mentally in the stunning surroundings of the high desert of western Colorado and eastern Utah. We hope that you will come away from our trips with a set of new skills in basic river running... and life. This is going to be your trip and we encourage you to make the most of it. Our amazing volunteer guides have some serious experience in guiding people outdoors. Use them, because just like you, they do this because they want to, not because they have to.

Therapeutic Value

We think that outdoor activities have a therapeutic value for everyone, especially for people with disabilities. Rafting, kayaking and paddle sports offer an incredible opportunity for adapting to each individual's strengths. Besides the fact that all these activities are a great exercise, they also provide the opportunity to bring people together and spend time in a beautiful environment. Who Is Running These Trips? Experienced volunteer river guides from Colorado Discover Ability will take you on the river adventure. Our river trips are designed to challenge people through self-discovery of their own abilities. In short, we are inviting you to get outside to test your emotional and physical barriers, to get independent, and to build self-confidence. Do it in an amazing environment with people that will challenge you and treat you as an equal partner in the outdoor adventure. You've done it and seen it before? Then come outside and play again. You can never get tired of the incredible outdoors in Colorado and Utah. All or part of this operation is conducted on Public Lands under special permit from the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.
