Memorial Day Weekend Canyoneering or River Trip

by Scott » Thu May 10, 2012 5:20 pm

I'm thinking of putting together a river trip or canyoneering trip over Memorial Day weekend.

Most small rivers (i.e. San Rafael) will not have enough water this year.

Possible River Trips

Colorado River Ruby-Horsethief

Colorado River Moab

Labyrinth (Friendship Cruise is cancelled this year due to low water)

Stillwater Canyon (requires boat pickup at Spanish Bottom)

Gunnison River Dominguez Canyon section

Green River Flaming Gorge to Browns Park (Red Creek Rapid is portagable)

Possible Canyoneering Trips

Eardley and Hyde Draw [San Rafael]

Burro, Cottonwood and Fivemile (and/or a virgin slot near Torrey if anyone is interested-1/2 day) [Capitol Reef]

Davis Gulch and Egypt 3 (maybe Ringtail or something else as well) [Escalante]

Gravel or Long [White Canyon]

Possible Backpack Trips

Scorpion Gulch [Escalante]

Little Death Hollow to Silver Falls [Escalante]

Boulder Creek [Escalante]

Death Hollow [Escalante]

Gypsum Canyon [near Dark Canyon]

Upper Salt Creek [Canyonlands]


Let me know if anyone is interested in any of the above

Return to Utah
