Cisco To Hittle Bottom


This section below Cisco is about as mellow as a river can get.  It is an interesting contrast to the Westwater area just up river from here.  If you want a nice relaxing float that runs most of the year (except for iced up winter periods) then this area all the way down to Moab is where you want to be.  Awesome scenery here.

Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the Colorado River are between a bare minimum of 2,000cfs and a high of 20,000cfs. River conditions sourced from USGS 09180500, the Colorado River Near Cisco Remember only watercraft are permitted at Cisco to Hittle Bottom.
