The trip of a lifetime! “Not to difficult, but difficult in places; long, but short enough to run in a day; wilderness, yet paralleled by the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Rail Road; the Upper Animas flows through the heart of the majestic San Juan Mountains. Overnights are common on this run just to prolong one’s immersion in the beautiful country. Enjoy the river: play it, work it, do a side hike up into the mountains surrounding it.” Choose from the Silverton Class IV – V stretch, the Needleton Class III – IV stretch, the Class IV Rockwood Gorge or do it all on our two and three day trips.
The Piedra has two distinct sections known as the Upper Piedra Box Class II – III+ and the Lower Piedra Box Class IV. It is not as difficult as the Upper Animas, but this is still a trip for experienced boaters because of the steep drops, cold water and isolation of the box canyons.
