Belknap’s Waterproof River Guides
The ORIGINAL – Publishing since 1969!
In 1974, in addition to the Grand Canyon River Guide, Westwater Books began publishing waterproof Guides on other parts of the Green and Colorado river system: Dinosaur River Guide covering the Green and the Yampa; Desolation River Guide, including Desolation and Gray canyons on the Green River, and Canyonlands River Guide on the Green and Colorado to Lees Ferry linking with the Grand Canyon River Guide.
Through the years and many updates later – from black and white to color, conventional pasteup to computers and digital imaging, old base maps to new, improved topographical techniques to shaded relief – Westwater Books has continued to publish this entire River Guide Series. We are dedicated to providing highly accurate, user friendly books that enhance the experience of all river adventurers: commercial, private or even those of the arm chair variety.
Originally designed with map pages only, our River Guides now include expanded sections on geology, history, natural history, archaeology and photography, researched and written by experts in their fields. Maps have improved, campsites have been added, and now access to the Internet allows us to expand information beyond the Guides by including important links to many useful resources.
GPS Waypoints Too
For those who like pinpointing locations for fun or research using GPS waypoints, you can now download waypoints for all four Guides.
Whether you’re about to embark and need to do some trip planning or have just returned from the river and want a valuable reminder of your adventure, we hope you’ll pick up a copy today. Just click on Products to see what each of our Guides has to offer.
