Ruby Canyon-Black Ridge Recreation Management Area


The Colorado River runs though Ruby Canyon into Utah. Rafting is the primary recreational activity. The canyon is very scenic, but is generally accessible only by river.


From Grand Junction, travel west on Interstate 70 about 15 miles to the Loma exit, State Highway 139. Use the Loma boat ramp to launch rafts. The site is well-marked. Areas north and west of the Colorado River provide additional opportunities for mountain biking, hiking, and off-highway vehicle riding in Rabbit Valley.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
