Cranes' Nest Rapids
A Kayak Trip in the Black Canyon
Crane's Nest Rapids: (rapids in name only as there are no rapids now)
A full day kayak trip in the Black Canyon, it is 2 miles past Emerald Cave, to the Crane's Nest Rapids area (8 miles round trip). There are several good beaches to picnic, play, or relax on. We often include a short hike up one of several side canyons. This trip is very similar to our Cranes' Nest Canyon half day paddling-hiking trip but here the emphasis is more or paddling and relaxing or playing once we get there.
The put-in point for our Black Canyon trips is Willow Beach, Arizona (just an hour and a half from downtown Las Vegas, Nevada).
