Desolation Canyon is rugged and remote, but a great place for a six-day family raft trip. The 84-mile long stretch of the Green River contains dozens of mild, Class II and III rapids – perfect for those looking to lounge on a raft or splash around in inflatable kayaks. The desert canyon hides a host of Native American and Outlaw historical sites to explore on foot, and this year’s high water (the basin contains 25 percent more snowpack than an average year) will allow for shorter floats on the river, meaning more time for hikes from camp.
