The Green River is an awesome stretch that cuts right into the great Uintah uplift. There’s a flat, open valley upstream, while downriver you’ll see huge stone gates, 1000 feet high, that appear to have split the mountains in two: The Gates of Lodore. You raft next to sheer canyon walls and challenge rapids with names like “Hell’s Half Mile” and “Disaster Falls”.

Rafts are diverse to give a variety of experiences. Relax in the oarboat, team paddle in the paddleboats or enjoy the solitude of paddling your own inflatable kayak. Guides are in boats and give instructions to those in the inflatable kayaks.
The Yampa and Green Rivers are sisters. The last two days of both journeys are the same as the rivers merge at Echo Park, deep within the Monument.
