Easy to river to run, Rafts are available to rent nearby. Great for Families

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!

We did the Green River float on a 5 man raft this weekend. We rented a raft from the Flaming Gorge Resort, but would've preferred to rent from one of the rental places in Dutch John. The FGR is a little further away.

This section of the river is pretty easy to float for most families. We took 5 kids, ages 5-12 with us. As long as you know that you should take the right hand side on most of the rapids, but take the left hand side on the 7th rapid, called "Monther-in-law." There is a sign a few hundred yards before on the right hand side telling you which rapid you are approaching. None of the rapids were very dangerous, but a few chances to get hung up on rocks.

If you paddle through the slow water, the float takes about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. If you stop and eat or jump of the rocks, plan on 3 hours.

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

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