The Next Generation San Juan Guidebook

River Runners For Wilderness is pleased to announce the release of the "next generation" San Juan River guidebook written by boaters for boaters! Preview copies have garnered rave reviews for the wealth of information presented in a easy-to-use format. It's been called the definitive San Juan River guide.

Duwain Whitis, publisher of RiverMaps map books, and Tom Martin, author of Day Hikes from the River, have once again teamed up for the “Guide To The San Juan River – Montezuma Creek to Clay Hills.” The guide covers the popular Sand Island-Mexican Hat-Clay Hills portion of the San Juan River as well as the stretch from Montezuma Creek to Sand Island.

The San Juan Canyon guidebook features USGS topographic map backgrounds, printed at their original scale, and map details in an easy-to-read format. In addition, it is the only San Juan guide showing campsite locations, campsite names, rapids, scouting points, and river miles. The accompanying mile-by-mile text describes all campsites on the Bureau of Land Management inventory (and some not on the inventory), with campsite pull-in information, geological, botanical and historical points of interest and popular hikes with photographs on nearly every text page. This completely waterproof guide is 8.5" X 14", spiral-bound to lay flat. The 34 page guide is printed on tough waterproof and tear resistant synthetic paper.

Just in time for holiday giving, the “Guide To The San Juan River – Montezuma Creek to Clay Hills” is available at our website store at The cost of this river guide is $27.00 (includes shipping.) Or, get the Desert Rivers Special, the new San Juan Guide plus the acclaimed Martin-Whitis Grand Canyon guide for the special price of $50, including shipping, for a limited time.
