Lower Green River Adventure

The Lower Green is perfect for everyone. This mom-approved river adventure takes you down a 3-mile stretch of the lower section of the Green River that offers easily navigated rapids, beautiful scenery, and deep, green swimming holes.


The Lower Green is a great whitewater experience for everyone and the perfect place to bring the kids or hone your skills before plunging into the Upper Green.

Your guide will point you in the right direction as you paddle through class I-II rapids in your own inflatable kayak. Enjoy the scenery, but don’t forget to stop along the way for a swim in a deep green pool or take a trip off a rope swing.

Need to reserve a 2-person boat? Don’t see a trip time that suits your group? Feel free to call our outpost – we may still have availability when booking by phone: (800) 335-1530.
