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.
