Best hike from a boat?

So here's a new topic for discussion, what is your favorite hike accessed from the river?

I got myself a Pyranha Fusion this last season and have been doing a few overnight floats, and the big allure of these to me is hiking and exploring areas that see few visitors. Obviously boaters are much more likely to get out and explore on a float trip then a whitewater trip....but I am open to anything and everything.

Some of the best hikes I did this season were:

Bull Gulch WSA on the "Upper" C near Sweetwater Creek.

Dominguez Canyon on the Gunnison

Browns Canyon WSA

Mee Canyon in Ruby/HT (going back next weekend for Rattlesnake)

what do you suggest for next season?

I hear that.Epic hike.

Rattlesnake in R/H is nice.
Hiking up Jones Hole is always fun. But technically UT.
Hanging out above Skull(via Roomodoom) is always a unique way to see WW. Also UT.

hmmm,apparently i didn't do much hiking from the riv in CO.

I like the short hikes to the hot springs.

If you climbed that from the river I give you much respect. That's stout.

I guess good hiking from the rivers in this lovely state is limited. That's why I asked for suggestions, feeling like I've already exhausted some of the best options....

I love the hike from the playpark to Eddyline, even better when live music is going at the "Beach". Did a few twilight Fractions trips ending at the live music and beer garden...

So, let's open it up to other states too then. The best hike from a river I have done so far was up Chinle creek on the Upper San Juan. The hanging alcoves were by far some of the coolest terrain I have ever hiked to, regardless of the river access...



Thanks for the replies everyone. Always appreciated.
