Colorado River / Cataract Canyon through Canyonlands National Park
Cataract Canyon! (Ultimate whitewater adventure
during 2018's high water season!)
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)
