Active Adventure
The Yampa CRANKS with consistent rapids, fast-moving current, and plenty of full-bodied waves from the first day to the last. Like many wild things, the Yampa River also has a serene side: sheer, tiger-striped walls that rise over 1,000 feet to the canyon rim; the liquid darkness of the night sky strewn with stars; sandy campsites among junipers and ponderosa pines; side-canyon waterfalls; and Fremont Indian rock art.
Typical Day
Visit indigenous ancestral sites, after the Yampa meanders past such attractions as The Grand Overhang, Cleopatra’s Couch and Tiger Wall. The Yampa joins the Green River at Echo Park where the canyon widens before the river circles Steamboat Rock. An afternoon may be spent at Jones Hole Creek �" a blue-ribbon trout stream with side canyon petroglyphs and waterfall.

Sleeping and meals
