Desolation and Gray Canyons are located deep within the rugged and remote Canyons.Desert / Red Rocks of central Utah. Through the canyons are 60 rapids, mostly ClassI (FLAT) and 2 and some Class 3. Along the way are some good Fremont rock art sites, other historical sites and pretty red rock canyons. There is also some good hiking to be had in canyons off the main river.
