Description

The San Juan River west of Mexican Hat runs through the renowned gooseneck area and its towering canyon walls. You'll pass numerous side canyons on your way to Clays Hill Crossing at the eastern tip of Lake Powell. This stretch of the San Juan River is 56 miles and takes 2-4 days depending on water flow.

This route has some mild ClassI and II whitewater, which can grow to ClassIII and even ClassIV during high water. Along the way are some excellent hiking opportunities into Grand Gulch Primitive Area and other side canyons.
