Description

Salt River Canyon provides some excellent whitewater rafting opportunities. Single and multi-day trips are available with rapids up to Class 4.

Single day trips are 10 miles and often include a pack lunch and possible short hikes in side canyons. 2, 3 and 5 day trips are also available. They bring you deeper and deeper into the canyon and away from civilization.

The Salt River is situated along the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau between mountain and desert ecosystems. The result is a interesting variety of plant, animal and bird life. Trips start through oak and juniper woodlands before dropping into the Lower Sonoran desert with its magnificent saguaro cactus. Many side canyon hikes lead to fascinating micro habitats for you to explore.
