Green River - Lodore Canyon

River Description:

Fed by dam-controlled flows from Flaming Gorge Reservoir, the Green River through Lodore Canyon provides rafting fun throughout the summer.This section of the Green River meanders through Dinosaur National Monument. Set aside as an American treasure in 1938 under the National Park system, this canyon is a sanctuary for bighorn sheep, deer and other friendly critters. Your 44-mile trip starts at the "Gates of Lodore" where two 800-foot buttresses mark the beginning of a series of canyons. You will see vermillion cliffs cut from Precambrian bedrock in Lodore canyon, then leapfrog through time as you cross a geologic fault in Echo Park, and see rock reflect the colors of a rainbow on your last day at the entrance to Split Mountain Gorge.
