Celebrating 44 years 1969-2013

Belknap’s Waterproof

River Guide Series

The first Powell Centennial Grand Canyon River Guide was published in 1969, followed by waterproof map guides covering the entire Green and Colorado River system. These include Canyonlands River Guide, Dinosaur River Guide and Desolation River Guide. The four Guides have been companions to hundreds of thousands of river running adventurers through the years. Annually updated with new information and photos, today’s full color editions feature shaded relief maps, accurate river mileage, campsites, GPS waypoints and informative text by noted archeologists, botanists and other Canyon experts.  The 2012 printing of the Grand Canyon River Guide includes an expanded Geology section by noted geologist, author and lecturer Wayne Ranney featuring detailed images of ancient landscapes.
