A vast land of canyons and mountains, the Colorado Plateau is the heart of the American West. Reaching 130,000 square miles along the Colorado River in Arizona, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico, it’s an iconic landscape filled with unique wildlife and ancient cultures. The Grand Canyon Trust is grounded in this place, working tirelessly since 1985 to protect the air, water, and wildlife of its slickrock canyons, fragile deserts, and forested mesas.

The Grand Canyon Trust is hosting a Colorado River rafting trip for supporters and friends...

... and we still have five spaces open for our May 18–23 upper river trip. This trip involves six glorious days on the river between Lee's Ferry and Pipe Creek (just below Phantom Ranch). Participants must arrive in Flagstaff on or before May 17th for departure from Flagstaff on May 18th. At the end of the river trip is a formidable hike up the Bright Angel Trail to the South Rim — a distance of eight miles and an elevation gain of approximately 4,700 feet.

Depending on your physical condition and whether you are carrying packs (arrangements can be made to have packs carried out for you), this hike can take three to six hours.

The cost is $1,985 per person (not including pre and post hotel accommodations nor guide gratuities).

For more information, or to make a reservation, please contact Phil Pearl at the Grand Canyon Trust, 928.774.7488 or ppearl@grandcanyontrust.org.
