The Colorado River exists Westwater Canyon and meanders down through open wilderness until it meets the Dolores River and soon after Hittle Bottom, the put-in for this classic rafting trip. Oar rafts will take you from the iconic Fisher Towers through to the takeout still another 10 miles from true civilization and Highway 191 and Moab.
One of the advantages of a river trip is the flexibility of the daily itinerary. It can vary widely from one trip to the next based on group desires, Mother Nature, and courtesy for other groups on the river. This typical itinerary illustrates a two-day Fisher Towers trip on the Colorado River.
Day 1: Meet group at headquarters at 8:00 a.m. Mountain Time in Green River Utah . You can buy any last minute items from our accessories store at this time. (our packing checklist for a list of items you can find at our store.) Buckle up for a 90-minute van ride to the put-in at Dewey Bridge. Float leisurely through calm water. Observe bald eagle, great blue heron and snowy egret habitats. Camp within sight of the 13,000' Sierra La Sal and Fisher Tower formations. Perhaps the most picturesque camp on the upper Colorado.
Day 2: Class II rapids appear in the Colorado and a flotilla of inflatable kayaks provide the action. Pass Castle Rock and Priest-and-Nuns formation before lunch at Salt Wash by Arches National Park. Passenger vans meet us at the take out and provide 60 minute transportation back to Green River. Our expected time of arrival back at our headquarters is 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.
