The season for Dolores River Rafting; April-June 2018.
Once a free-flowing and mighty river, the Dolores River ran reliably every Spring through the magnificent Dolores River Canyon, the longest flowing canyon only second to the Grand Canyon. Known for its playful whitewater, legendary class IV “Snaggletooth” rapid, ancient Anasazi ruins, and stunning scenery makes it a trip of a lifetime.
Rafting the Dolores River is a special treat that few ever get to experience. Ironically, the Dolores River lives up to its name, the “River of Sorrow,” due to the limited releases. Impounded by the walls of Mcphee Dam only every few years does mother nature overwhelm the heights of this blockage to allow water to cascade marvelously through the red rock and gold walls.
Tucked away in the Southwest Corner of Colorado, far away from the racing pace of everyday life, is the Southwest’s Dolores River Canyon! Don’t miss this chance to experience Dolores River rafting. Who knows how long it will be until you can ride this river of lore again.
