Colorado River

Colorado River The Colorado River stretches from its headwaters in Rocky Mountain National Park all the way to the Gulf of California. In and around Canyon Country, the river offers diverse opportunities for boating and outdoor recreation. Thrill seekers will enjoy the full-scale rapids of Westwater and Cataract Canyons while those looking for a more laid-back experience can check out the calmer, canoe-friendly stretches such as Ruby/Horsethief or the serene flat water above the Confluence. The popular "Moab Daily" offers the best of both worlds with fun, splashy riffles that both novices and experienced river runners will enjoy.
