West Water Canyon, Colorado River


Westwater Canyon, located within the Westwater Canyon Wilderness Study Area, is considered by many to be one of the nation's best overnight whitewater river trips. The combination of major rapids and spectacular 17-mile-long canyon setting draws boaters from all over, but you must you must be experienced or go with a skilled outfitter. The river is nothing to be trifled with as it has killed seven people since 1982. A small seasonal waterfall is located on the Little Dolores River about 200 yards upstream from its confluence with the Colorado River. Several small arches are located just below Star Canyon along the skyline. You will see an old miner's cabin, the ""outlaw cave"" and some Native American sites within the canyon. These are protected by law, but more importantly, they should be respected as remnants of our cultural heritage.
