This section below Cisco is about as mellow as a river can get.  It is an interesting contrast to the Westwater area just up river from here.  If you want a nice relaxing float that runs most of the year (except for iced up winter periods) then this area all the way down to Moab is where you want to be.  Awesome scenery here. Weather on the river today will be showers likely, mainly after 1pm. cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly sunny, with a high near 50. calm wind becoming southwest around 5 mph. chance of precipitation is 60%.

This run is accessible from just a single access point, Access - Cisco Boat Ramp, located along the Colorado River.

Season Begins: January & Ends: December
