EVENTS: The annaul Green River Cleanup takes place in spring every year and is coordinated by Washington Recreational River Runners and Friends of the Green River.
Good section for advanced beginners to practice with small surf waves, eddies, and a couple rapids.
An alternate access downstream for those interested in a longer run.
The tree in the upper section has moved out of the way and is on River right. Not an issue.
Sept 29th 2018 Saturday ran Lower Green Gorge. At horseshoe bend there is a tree spanning the river with root wad on river left. We portaged on the right. The river is calm enough in the bend to safely get out on the gravel bar to walk around without any issues. Washington Kayak Club has posted pictures on their forum.

If someone gets hurt on a river, or you read about a whitewater-related injury, please report it to
American Whitewater. Don't worry about multiple submissions from other witnesses, as our safety
editors will turn multiple witness reports into a single unified accident report.
Boaters grab your boats and gear! On Saturday, May 2nd, we expect to see a river alive with kayaks, rafts, canoes, inflatable kayaks, and cat-rafts. We want boaters on every reach of the Green River -- from Headworks to WhitneyBridge -- and perhaps even farther downstream, with sea-kayaks on the Duwamish.
Log into the American Whitewater website and you can contribute to river descriptions,
flow and access tips, and maps associated with runs you've done. You can even add new
runs to the inventory!
