"Down the River" - CCA River Adventure

Explore the Ruby-Horsethief Section of the Colorado River with CCA!


Colorado Canyons Association is excited to offer an educational adventure on the Colorado River! Paddle an inflatable kayak or relax aboard an oar raft as you travel 25 miles through Ruby and Horsethief Canyons. Marvel at the area’s serenity, while winding through dramatic sandstone canyons deep in the heart of the McInnis Canyons National Conservation Area (NCA). Short hikes lead to breathtaking overlooks, ancient Native American sites, and red rock arches. Allow CCA’s expert guides to share their deep knowledge of the diverse ecology, geology, paleontology, and human history of the area. Delicious, freshly prepared meals, comfortable campsites, and unhindered night skies will be unforgettable. Come along with us as we go Down the River.
