Nice little walk. Drive down was a little daunting as I took my Jetta down but made it with no problem as far as the clearance but lots of rumble-strip like patches that make for slow going. Also the steep switch backs the first two-ish miles are a challenge but I’m still here. Unless there’s bad weather don’t let the signs discourage you

Magnificent area. Breathtaking views. Bring swim attire and cool off in the Green River. Just be careful with the current. The water is murky with all the silt as well. The Whispering Cave gives you a cool breeze once you step into the narrow passage way.

Wonderful place. Be sure and cool of in the Wind Cave, a gigantic slab of sandstone standing separate from the canyon wall. Watch for petroglyphs in the narrows. The huge rock across the river is called Steamboat rock. Consider hiking to Harpers Corner on this trip and perhaps the Yampa Bench road.
