In its lower reaches, the San Juan River enters a geological wonderland, wending around the famous Goosenecks of the San Juan, diving into the bottom of an imposing, deep canyon. Off the river, the canyon invites you to explore historic sites such as an abandoned mining outpost and a vertiginous prospector’s trail. Natural wonders, fossils, and secret, fern-draped pools await up the many side canyons. Government Rapid is the class III whitewater highlight of the trip, but other class I and II rapids provide ample opportunity for inflatable kayaking.
