This 4-day excursion provides the best of the best... unprecedented mountain biking and world class whitewater rafting.
One of the advantages of a bike/river trip is the flexibility of the daily itinerary. It can vary widely from one trip to the next based on group desires, Mother Nature, and courtesy for other groups in the area. This typical itinerary illustrates a bike trip through the La Sal Mountain range outside of Moab and raft trip through Westwater Canyon on the Colorado River.
|Meet group at headquarters in Green River, Utah. A two-hour van ride to the Manti - La Sal National Forest marks the start of the trip. The first day's ride will take the group along old logging roads through forests consisting of huge ponderosa pine trees and abundant mountain streams. The trail continues to wind northward to altitudes upwards of 8000 feet. Camp on this evening is made at or near Bull Draw.|
|Our ride today requires each and all to tighten their helmet straps and hold on! After a hot breakfast the route begins a breathtaking descent from alpine forest to desert floor. Along the way we'll take time out to appreciate the spectacular overlooks that are abundant in this region. By the end of the day we will have dropped 4,000 vertical feet to the desert floor.|
|Put-in on the Colorado river at the Westwater Ranger Station. Relaxing float to Little Hole Canyon's natural amphitheater where shards of Indian pottery can be seen. In favorable conditions a short hike up Little Dolores Canyon reveals a beautiful desert waterfall and swimming hole. Camp near Little Dolores.|
|Leisurely breakfast before rapids of Westwater. Rapids, one right after another, Marble, Staircase, Hunter's, Funnel Falls, and Surprise... lead to Skull Rapid, one of the Colorado's fiercest drops. Finish with Bowling Alley, Sock-it-to-me and Last Chance. Vans will return you to our Headquarters in Green River at the end of the trip.|
