  Fun Facts

The annual Green River Cleanup takes place in spring every year and is coordinated by Washington Recreational River Runners and Friends of the Green River.

   Run Description

The lower gorge is easier than the upper, but is still a very fun run with some great scenery. After the first couple of rapids there is a warm spring on river left. Not the most lovely spring by any stretch of the imagination, but it can be a nice find on a cold day. Most of the good rapids are in the first half of the run and then it mellows to long stretches of flat water and a few class 2 rapids in the bottom half.
