Life List Stillwater Canyon, Utah

Travel rugged, red-rock backcountry in Canyonlands National Park the easy way--by boat.
  • The trail from Spanish Bottom to the Doll’s House is steep but only about a mile long.
  • Get an early start each morning so you can make miles before the risk of afternoon upcanyon winds.
  • In late summer’s slow-moving current, raft-up with your buddies and enjoy a floating lunch.
  • Pack water-guns in hot weather.
  • Single canoes are faster, but families with kids will love the stability and space of two canoes connected by a platform.
  • In late summer and fall, you’ll find large beach camps all along the river.
  • In late-summer, with hot temps and slow current, bring tubes for cool river lounging.
  • Explore a narrow slot on a short loop hike near the Doll’s House.
  • Explore a narrow slot on a short loop hike near the Doll’s House.
  • Mud flats are a kid favorite; have them wash off before getting back in the boats.
