Moab Essentials: Raft

Date Placed: June 20, 2010

Status: Active

Up for some river rafting? Then grab your raft for some of the best Moab has to offer on the scenic Colorado River.

Directions: Take Highway 128 east, just north of Moab, along the Colorado River (if you cross over the river on the bridge, you've missed your turn!). Enjoy the scenery as you wind your way along the beautiful Colorado, framed by steep red cliffs on either side. Eventually along the way, you'll find the Sandy Beach. Park, and head down towards the beach.

Find the Sandy Beach info sign. Look for the large, old cottonwood tree a handful of steps away from the sign. Go back behind the tree to find a raft tucked up inside a hole at the base of the tree. A rock covers the opening.
