OVERVIEW

Often referred to as the “Little Grand Canyon”, the Salt River is truly the hidden treasure of Arizona. Take in the stunning scenery of the Upper Sonoran Desert as you escape into the wilderness. You’ll charge through exhilarating Class III whitewater as 2,000-foot rock canyon walls rise up to either side and provide an incredible backdrop to rapids like Baptism, Kiss and Tell, and Mother Rock. Keep an eye out for the endangered Southern Bald Eagles that nest at the top of the limestone cliffs. A hot, grilled steak lunch caps off this perfect day in the wilderness.

The Salt River truly offers the chance to escape from the rigors of day to day life while still remaining convenient to Arizona’s major cities. Spend a day letting your worries disappear as you leave behind electricity, wifi and cell phones, secure in the knowledge that you can make it back to Tucson or Phoenix in time for dinner.
