ABOUT THE DOLORES RIVER

The Dolores River is a truly unspoiled western river, framed by the remote desert of southwestern Colorado. The banks of the Dolores are lined with huge Ponderosa pines, which create a stark contrast against the red and orange sandstone cliffs. Join us to explore this famed river, to hear a canyon wren’s descending spiral call within its corridors, or see cacti in bloom on a side-canyon hike. We look forward to sharing this incredible trip with you!

DOLORES RIVER SCENERY

Needless to say the surrounding scenery of the Dolores is absolutely stunning. It truly captures the essence of remote western wilderness. You check-in at the historic Mesa Verde Inn, located outside of Mesa Verde National Park. Mesa Verde is famous for over 600 cliff dwellings of the Ancestral Pueblo people.

This operation is conducted on public lands under special recreation permit with the Bureau of Land Management Tres Rios Field Office.
