Hiking the Copper CanyonThe 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.
