RIO PIAXTLA : Source-to-Sea through the Deepest Canyon in North America
108 miles, class III-IV, 8 days
September 17-24, 2011: rendezvous in Mazatlán. MORE INFO
On this kayak/raft expedition down Río Piaxtla, we plan to fly up to the rim, hike down into the deepest canyon in North America, and then paddle all the way to the Pacific Ocean. This is one of the last free-flowing rivers in Mexico's Sierra Madre Occidental and may be dammed soon, so enjoy it while you still can! Everyone is welcome: kayakers, rafters, and raft passengers. The trip is suitable for intermediate kayakers. Class V paddlers have an option of tackling the Puerta de Piaxtla section for the 3 days prior to meeting the group.
