Lodore Canyon is a 2-5 day rafting trip of 39 miles. It has some fun class 3 rapids that are great for kids ages 8 and up. Steep red or light grey canyon walls are dotted with pine trees and you can often spot mule deer, sheep and other wildlife as you float through Dinosaur National Monument. Wonderful beach campsites are shaded with Box Elder trees. This trip runs May through September, with the best flows occuring in May and June, depending on snowmelt.
Desolation and Gray Canyon
A popular Utah family river trip, the Desolation and Gray canyon river trip is 85 miles long and takes usually 4-6 days. Amazing Rock Art and Native American historical sites and ruins are found along the river or on hikes from the river. There are excellent hiking opportunities on many trails right from the river. The scenery features red rock canyons, mountain vistas and big old cottonwood trees. Camping is usually on sandy beaches and there are lots of wildlife viewing opportunities. There are many flat water miles and lots of class 2-3 rapids. Outfitters often bring inflatable kayaks to add to the excitement.
Labyrinth is a 68 mile flat water section of the Green that is popular as a 4-6 day canoe trip, but also is commonly floated in rafts and inflatable kayaks. The canyon scenery is stunning, and this section of river is fantastic for bird watching. Towering sandstone walls of orange and reddish brown line the river corridor, and side canyons make for interesting hiking. There are petroglyphs and more recent etchings from explorers and mountain men who first explored this canyon. Due to the quiet nature of this trip, opportunities for viewing wildlife abound. This is a great trip for anyone nervous about river travel.
Stillwater is a 52 mile flat water section of the Green River that is often floated in combination with Labyrinth Canyon. It runs through Canyonlands National Park and ends with the confluence of the Colorado river, and takes 3-6 days to float. Amazing red rock formations and Ancient Puebloan ruins and rock art sites make this a magical journey. Hiking opportunities are fabulous, as the river allows you access to some very remote areas of Canyonlands National Park. Due to the quiet nature of this trip, opportunities for viewing wildlife abound.
