Green River White Water Rafting Trips

A magnificent towering canyon marks the start of the Green River trip at the "Gates of Lodore". This trip is known as one of the most beautiful stretches of river anywhere. Fed by dam-controlled flows from Flaming Gorge Reservoir, the Green River through Lodore Canyon provides rafting throughout the summer. The trip follows part of the route taken by Major John Wesley Powell on his epic 1869 exploration of this continent’s last uncharted wilderness. In the calm stretches wildlife abounds. As the oar rafts quietly float through the canyon we often see deer, waterfowl, beaver and desert bighorn sheep. Several challenging rapids lie hidden between the sheer cliffs of this spectacular canyon; participants eagerly indulge themselves in rapids known as "Disaster Falls", "S.O.B." and "Hells Half Mile".

The trip starts at the northern boundary of Dinosaur National Monument in Colorado and floats to the western edge of the Monument near the Dinosaur quarry site near Jensen, Utah.
