San Rafael River

San Rafael River Professional Review and Guide

"A long day hike or overnighter along the San Rafael River in the Glen Canyon geologic formations. The seclusion of the region and its unusual beauty offer a unique experience.

Numerous washes and the San Rafael River have cut a path through the thick sandstone layers in the Glen Canyon Series of the San Rafael Swell. Panoramas can be viewed from the top of the swell as you drive in and out of the region, and unique riparian habitat exists in the washes and canyon bottoms."
