Floating with the Family

Who says you have to be a hard-core rafter to experience the Colorado River? Your family can enjoy an afternoon on a lazy river ride through magnificent red canyons and open waters. Too hot? Going overboard is no problem in this section of the Colorado River.

Tours and Treks

If you know where to go, you can turn your adventure into a multi-activity excursion! Only accessible by boat or on foot, explore the Ruby and Horsethief Canyons to spot wildlife, see ancient Precambrian rock and ditch the raft for a trek to view pictographs by the ancient Fremont Indians. Can’t get enough? Consider a multi-day trip. If you plan to venture into Ruby and Horsetheif Canyons overnight, you will need a camping permit
