Rowing CraftRowing RaftRowing Raft
This 120-mile expedition takes you through the renowned Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park. It offers some of the wildest, most exciting whitewater in the country during the months of May, June and early July, when the spring run-off fills the canyon's watercourse with raging torrents. From July to October, the river calms itself with lower water, but is by no means placid. Later summer offers pristine sandbars and warm water. Those interested in doing more hikes in Canyonlands National Park will be interested in our 6 day trip, which offers an emphasis on hiking. (4% access fee not included in all Cataract Canyon trips)
