Desolation Gray Canyons on the Green River

This will be a Class III trip, 84 miles, 6 night-7 day long trip*.

Launch on September 5, Take Out on September 11* (*the take-out date could be extended if the group chooses).

I am keeping the group relatively small at probably 8-10 people maximum.

At this time, there is a wait list.  There is always fluctuation in the group, so please let me know if you are interested.

Paddlers must be able to paddle a loaded craft for full days in up to Class III rapids.  If I do not know you, I will need to verify your experience.

Details will be sent in the future to those confirmed and those interested.  Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.

This will be an ACA trip.  ACA membership or $10 per person event insurance fee is required in addition to fees noted below and group fees TBD.
