Green River

Green River Originating in Wyoming's Wind River Mountains, the Green River runs a total of 730 miles before joining the Colorado River in the vast canyons of Southeast Utah. It's meandering route through the Colorado Plateau grants access to some of the most spectacular canyons in the area. The Green River has a long history of human occupation; the river basin was home to several semi-nomadic peoples including the Freemont Culture, Shoshone and Ute. Snaking languidly, the Green offers boaters an unhurried float through the backcountry by raft, kayak or canoe.
