The Gunnison River: Whitewater to Redlands Dam

Saturday, June 11, 2022 | Average CFS: 2,040

After spending much of the last two weeks out and about, it was time for me to stay closer to home for a weekend before heading up into the mountains to begin the summer season. I thought another local river trip was in order, so Jackson and I planned to float a new section of the Gunnison River from Whitewater to the Redlands Dam in Grand Junction. There’s not too much information out there about this stretch of the river, so we were looking forward to checking it out!

Grand Junction Exploring

IntrepidXpedition 2007 | Day 7 & 8
Wednesday & Thursday, July 25-26, 2007

Most of my day on Wednesday was spent at the UFWDA Annual Convention. However when we finished for the day, the only thing on my mind was heading out and exploring the area just outside of town. Right near the hotel that the convention was held at is an OHV area at the base of the Book Cliffs called The Grand Junction Desert. I started out by following 27.25 Road north. Eventually the pavement turned to gravel and then to a bumpier trail.

Billings Canyon

MoabCO Trip 2006
Sunday, April 30, 2006

After running 21 Road the day before, Wally and I headed up to an even tougher trail called Billings Canyon which is located in the Bangs Canyon area. This trail started out mild, but got very tough once you reached the upper section. It was a good time, and I only had to winch up the final waterfall. The only carnage I had was a busted JKS control arm (this is the 2nd one I’ve broken now) and I added a little bend to my tie rod. I took quite a few photos throughout the day…
