OVERVIEW

The Dolores River is one of the Southwest’s best-kept secrets, offering a unique combination of solitude, scenery, wildlife, and ancient history. Start your excursion at the base of the 14,000-foot San Juan Mountains, and float through pink Navajo and red Wingate sandstone walls as the Dolores carries you into the canyon. Take in Anasazi ruins and petroglyphs, an abundance of wildlife, and spectacular scenery as you take on fun Class II and III whitewater.

This Class II/III whitewater trip is perfect for the avid adventurer who really wants to get a complete rafting experience. Located in the southwest corner of Colorado, the Dolores River is a classic western river, unspoiled with a majestic desert backdrop.

The banks of the Dolores are lined with huge Ponderosa pines, which create a stark contrast against the red and orange sandstone cliffs. Needless to say the surrounding scenery of the Dolores is absolutely stunning. It is the epitome of the Wild, Wild West.
