Westwater Canyon - Colorado River - 3 Day / Griffith Expeditions

Basics
Activity Type:
Rafting,
Hiking / Walking
Length:
3 Days

Description

Westwater has all the components of a classic river trip: great whitewater, wonderful camp sites, lots of good hikes, remote wilderness canyon, excellent opportunities for mud baths and water fights, lots of flat water to practice inflatable kayak skills and more.

This particular stretch of the Colorado River is wild and free flowing, resulting in a variety of water levels through the rafting season as the snows melt and run off from the Colorado Rockies. Each water level produces different whitewater challenges.

The narrow canyon of billion-year old black schist rock is a sharp contrast to the red rock cliffs preceding and following the whitewater section. Indian pictographs, and other relics of human and natural history are some of the hiking highlights. There's one day of exciting rapids, with the two are spent playing in the river. A three-day trips allows for more hiking and a better sense of a comfortable "wilderness" experience.
