Copper Canyon Hiking
Foot travel is not always easy or comfortable, but there is no other way to fully experience the majestic beauty of the Copper Canyon! Copper Canyon Mexico is the largest canyon system in North America. Most people who visit the area do so on the train, catching only glimpses of three of the seven major canyons.

The rivers that offer a hearty hiking challenge are the Rio Tararecua, Rio Urique, Rio Verde, Rio Guerachi and Rio Oteros and their numerous side canyons. Late winter and spring months are ideal for a back packing challenge because by then the rainy season is over and the river flows have receded to allow reasonably safe passage. These trips require some special gear for getting you through high water. And they require a physically and mentally fit traveler who can handle the uncertainties of extremely difficult terrain.
