Ruby horsethief

Can you do a one nighter in Ruby Horsethief or is it typically ran in two nights from Loma to Westwater. Just seeing if there are any options for a two day one night float.

Thanks.

You can do it in a day if you wanted , especially now that its flowing at a decent rate, plenty of places to camp if you want to make night of it!

We floated on June 6 & 7. The river was moving along nicely. About 8 hours total float time. We put in at about 11:30 and were at camp in Mee Canyon by 4:30, with a long lunch stop. A 10:30 launch from camp on Sunday had us at the WW ramp by about 2:30.

Rimrock Adventures in Fruita handled our shuttle and a groover rental. Good outfit.

We did it last year in August and it was a really enjoyable 2 day trip. Some rowing at the end, but otherwise, it was a nice liesurely float with an overnight. Great trip for families with small kids.
