In 1869 this stretch of the Green River was among one of the first canyons that John Wesley Powell explored during his historic journey. Marked by the 800-foot granite buttresses at its entrance, the Gates of Lodore section of the Green River is a masterpiece of whitewater and scenic beauty. This is a river expedition unlike any other. For four days and three nights you will glide through spectacular canyons with names like Echo Park and Split Mountain and burst through rapids called Hell’s Half Mile, Disaster Falls, and Triplet. This whitewater voyage will cut through the High Uinta Range, traversing alpine forest and into high desert slick rock over the course of 44 miles. Daily activities include rafting thrilling whitewater, exploring unique side canyons, and viewing ancient native american pictographs. Evenings will be spent on remote beaches, enjoying delicious meals and time spent under the spectacular star-filled Utah sky. This is a memorable trip and one not to be missed!
