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.

The 24th Annual Green River (WA) Cleanup is Set For May 2, 2009!

4/29/2009
Carla Miner

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.

Flow Survey on Green River, WA

10/17/2007
Thomas O'Keefe

During the 2007/2008 paddling season AW is collecting data on flow preferences for the Green River, WA. For the next few months we will be conducting a survey of boater experiences at different flows. If you have run the Green this season please take the survey each time you paddle the river. We will be using these data as part of a study on recreational flow needs on the Green River.
