Toughest Rapids

If you're looking for Utah white water rafting at its finest, Yampa River rafting in Dinosaur National Monument has it all! Action, excitement and history. The Yampa River is the last major tributary of the Colorado River System that is natural and free flowing. Each spring, this Utah river offers thrilling whitewater, including Teepee, Big Joe and Warm Springs rapids (considered one of the ten toughest rapids in the country). The Yampa River has a relatively short but wild season as its flows are totally dependent upon run-off from winter snows.

Beautiful Utah Scenery

In addition to rapids, the scenery along the Yampa River adds a beautiful dimension. On Yampa rafting trips, you can expect to see such sights as "Tiger Wall", named for its black streaks called "desert varnish." Imposing white sandstone cliffs serve as the backdrop to groves of Box Elder trees. Eagles and falcons majestically soar above the canyon walls. This area was first inhabited by prehistoric cultures, then early Native Americans and later by miners and homesteaders of the 1800's. As you raft down the Yampa , you'll stop along the way to visit ancient Indian sites and other places of historical significance. This Utah rafting trip has been selected by geology professors many times over as a fabulous field trip for students and if you're a geology buff, there's plenty here for your interest and enjoyment.
