Colorado River Frequently Asked Questions:
- Can I paddle up the river without using a backhaul?  -- No.  The current is too strong.
- Is there road access to the river between the Glen Canyon dam and Lee's Ferry? -- No.  It's a gorge.
- Can I drive to a launch point at the dam and take out at Lee's Ferry? -- No.  The trip begins and ends at Lee's Ferry.
- Can I do the Colorado River trip as a daytrip, instead of an overnight trip?-- No. At this time, the trip can only be accomplished as an overnight tour.  The good news is that this is the best way to experience the area anyway.
