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 half 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).

See desert animals and vegetation of the Black Canyon;  Mojave Desert Flora and Fauna .
