During high water season (2200 – 3200 cubic feet per second/cfs), typically in June, rafters must be a minimum of 12 years old and weigh 50 lbs. or more. 

In extreme high water (over 3200 cfs), the Royal Gorge is closed, and rafters must be a minimum of 16 years old and weigh 90 lbs. or more on all other sections of the river.
