Single-Day Paddle Trip

This unique adventure begins with a short hike to a majestic archaeological site on the Navajo Nation. After this short hike, we'll begin our float which is approximately 7.5 miles in length. Along the way we'll stop for a scrumptious lunch with a splendid view. During the float, we'll make an additional stop to see more remnants of an ancient thriving civilization that existed approximately 1200 years ago. We'll "take-out" our vessels at the Sand Island Boat Ramp where we'll be able to view ancient petroglyphs on the Jurassic walls of patina.
