Mile 187.5 - Whitmore Helicopter Pad and Trail
The Heaton Family operates the Bar 10 Ranch on the Arizona Strip, which services river guests who are lifted out of the canyon by helicopter and flown to the ranch. After enjoying a shower and some delicious food they are then flown by fixed wing aircraft to Las Vegas or Marble Canyon. The helicopter pad is located near river level, but above the old high water line on Hualapai land. Replacing the people flying out of the canyon, new groups of guests are flown into the canyon for 3-day river trips from the helicopter pad to Pearce Ferry on Lake Mead.
