This trip combines the adventures of Mountain Biking with Whitewater Rafting! This trip begins the Rift Valley Overlook Mountain Bike Tour and finishes with a half-day rafting trip on the Racecourse.

Our half day guided Rift Valley Overlook Mountain Bike Tour invites you to enjoy 9 miles of easy sloping terrain with breathtaking views into the Rio Grande Gorge along with panoramic vistas showcasing the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. This protected single track trail is home to red fox and various deer. Don't forget your camera! You will want to take advantage of the many picturesque points of interest along the way. Recommended for beginner to intermediate riders.

Then off to the river for some rafting. Grab your paddle and get set to get wet as the Rio Grande snakes through the towering cliffs of Pilar Canyon and races you down exciting Class I-III rapids such as Albert Falls, The Narrows, and Big Rock. Be prepared to enjoy beautiful scenery, Native American history, and numerous species of wildlife that live in the Rio Grande canyon. Eagles, falcons, owls, geese, and mergansers are just a few of the birds that dwell in this healthy bird sanctuary. The Racecourse provides thrills for the entire family throughout the summer.
