River Description


A beautiful run through a basalt and sandstone gorge.

The first (and largest) rapid lies immediately downstream of Pah Tempe Hot Springs as the river cuts through sandstone bluffs, volcanic cinder cones and basalt flows. Downstream, the river meanders around tamarisk benches before encountering more basalt ledges at Berry Springs. Hwy.9 provides a handy take-out.

Floated this end of March 2017. Flow was 380 CFS. Put in below Hwy Bridge at confluence park trailhead and took out at Quail lake Bridge. Beautiful area. Started off with a couple short III class moves and the rest of the float was Class II with a couple short class III sections. Only had to scout one spot towards the end 2 miles before the take out. Perfect flow.

Green River Boat Passage Officially Open! - UT

4/6/2017
Kestrel Kunz

American Whitewater staff traveled to Green River, UT in late March to meet with private water users and state agencies, and to participate in the official opening of the new boat passage through the Green River Diversion (Tusher Dam). Completion of the boat passage has freed the Green River from its last in-stream obstruction between the Flaming Gorge Dam and the confluence with the Colorado River – over 400 floatable river miles through iconic canyons and historic landmarks. It has a been a long process, and our work isn’t over yet! As your boating representative, American Whitewater will continue to work closely with the dam operators and Utah’s Division of State Lands (FFSL) to ensure that the boat passage meets the needs of the public during its inaugural year.
