Yampa River Rafting Trip

The last of the wild ones! When the Yampa is running the whole Colorado Plateau is alive with whitewater. See the headwaters of the Colorado River system and ride the crest of one of the best river trips in the world. The water level depends completely on run-off from the snowmelt during the first part of the season. These famous waters are compressed between the canyon walls creating unforgettable rapids such as “Tepee”, “Big Joe” and “Warm Springs”. Be sure and make reservations for this very special run.

The Yampa trip starts at the eastern edge of Dinosaur National Monument and flows west to Split Mountain Canyon at the western portion of the Monument near Jensen, Utah.
