The self-guided Lower Green trip is a great whitewater experience for groups who have done our guided trips or have some previous experience and want to enjoy the river at their own pace. Enjoy the scenery, but don’t forget to stop along the way for a swim in a deep, green pool or a picnic lunch on a sandy beach. Meet at our new Riverside Outpost in Green River Cove, watch a brief safety video, and we’ll provide all transportation and gear support. One-person and two-person inflatable boats are available.
