Wilderness Salt River Raft Trip

One of the top ten multi-day raft trips in the U.S! The Salt River Canyon Wilderness was federally protected in 1984 to preserve this premier river experience.  This 52 mile adventure includes stout Class IV rapids such as Black Rock, The Maze, Quartzite Falls and Corkscrew Rapid. Cibecue, Walnut, Hess and Yankee Joe side canyons contain quite pools and waterfalls supporting over 200 species of birds along with desert dwellers such as Coati, Javalina, Big Horn Sheep and Gila Monsters. The majestic Sonoran Desert fauna of countless wildflowers, Ocotillo, Sotol and towering Saguaro are complimented by the exotic geology of 1.4 billion year old granite and 800 year old Salado Indian Ruins. Trips are restricted to a maximum of 11 guest enhancing the solitude and serenity of one of the few remaining stretches of free flowing river in the southwest. Rental camping gear is available and dietary concerns met upon request.
