It’s an amazing fishing area! As you are casting you can hear hawks hunting above you. Be warned, watch out for rattlesnakes they are sparse but can be found in the canyon.

Beautiful trail along the Green River. The trail down the gorge to the river edge is a bit steep but the rest is easy.

This is definitely not a "hard" hike, but more like a mellow nature walk. The first 2.5 miles and in the trees, and you finally get to a good view of the gorge at around 3 miles. Very pretty, but not what we were expecting!

I would rate this as an easy hike, not moderate. Nice flat walk to a beautiful overlook of Flaming Gorge.

Awesome and stunning trail alongside the Green River starting immediately south of the Flaming Gorge Dam. Be aware there are multiple wading opportunities right now due to high water. Missing pieces of walkway and trail along the way so you will get wet right now. Needs some trail work , but it is So worth some wet boots. Friendly rafters and fisherman along the way to have fun with! Also note: the first and last .5 mile is all the elevation loss and gain.

It's rated as hard, but actually more moderate. Mostly level walking with slight inclines. Path can be a little rocky, but mostly a nice dirt path. The sights are amazing, definitely worth it. And you can tailor the hike to the distance you'd like. We didn't do the whole thing but tied it into the Greens Lake Trail. Beautiful scenery.

I lived in Dutch John when I was a teenager so this trail will always be amazing to me. Great scenery, snooty fish and fishermen in various moods. And many people in rafts.

A awesome place to raft with the family. Had a blast on the River. This is such a fun area. I think The marker for this needs to be adjusted a bit closer to the Green River Area. Here are the coordinates to the look out above the River N 40° 54.694 W 109° 25.138.

I've camped and water-skied a couple of different times at Flaming Gorge. It's a nice area for camping and boating.

I have both hiked and floated this trail from Flaming Gorge Dam to Little Hole. Wonderful trip either way. Great trout fishing on a premier fly fishing stream.

Took a camping/fly fishing trip a few weeks ago. Despite the water running high, I was able to catch a few rainbows and browns. It is beautiful up there, but quite busy.
