Demaree Canyon consists of rugged canyons featuring intricate and interesting geology. The winding canyons contain layers of brightly colored clays and shales with shades of red, purple, gray, and yellow that glow like fire during sunrise and sunset. Demaree Canyon offers excellent opportunities for primitive and unconfined recreation. Views of the snowcapped La Sal Mountains rising above the shimmering red rock canyon-country enhance the wilderness values of one of the few remaining roadless areas in Colorado’s Bookcliffs. Due to Demaree Canyon’s highly dissected topography, caused by the series of canyons and ridges within the area, outstanding opportunities for wilderness solitude exist.
