Rafting on Utah’s major rivers is an experience of a lifetime. There are five of them – the Colorado, Dolores, Green, San Juan and Yampa. White water rafting abounds in Utah! All are a part of the Colorado water system and drain the expansive Colorado Plateau occuping most of the eastern and southern portions of the state. The Green and San Juan are the Colorado’s two major tributaries in Utah; the Yampa flows out of eastern Colorado through Dinosaur National Monument and joins the Green at Echo Park, near Vernal. The Dolores originates in southwestern Colorado’s San Juan Mountains and flows north along the eastern edge of Utah’s LaSal Mountains, finally merging with the Colorado River about 30 miles from Moab.
These marvelous rivers have everything that makes for memorable experiences.
