El Camino Real Paddling


The El Camino Real paddling trail is a great introductory experience to kayaking or canoeing on slow moving water. The check-in process is quick and easy. You launch right from our boat dock at the River Co. and spend two to three hours on the water until you arrive at your exit, the Colorado River Refuge. Ground logistics may vary based on the size of your group but we work with you to figure out the details of the day.
