While we don’t run this section ourselves we work with several of the best companies in the area and are happy to discuss the trip, the outfitters and your options. This canyon of the Green River received its name from John Wesley Powell during his epic descent of the Green and Colorado Rivers in 1869 and 1871, but it is far from “desolate”.  Desolation Canyon is 84 miles in length and includes about 50 riffles and rapids. “Deso” is perfect for children as young as six years of age, and has provided a family vacation venue for many of our guests.
