A world-class one-day whitewater section rated Class 4 plus, which can also be experienced as part of a 2- or 3-day adventure. The nation's oldest Wild & Scenic River, the Rio Grande threads through an 800-foot-deep wilderness canyon of towering basalt walls (alive with eagles, falcons, and bighorn sheep) known as the Taos Box. White-knuckle white water combines with the serenity of the wilderness to create a lifetime of memorable adventures.
