Description

The longest trail in the Green River Game Lands trail network, this trail offers a relatively gradual climb up the Green River Gorge. The trail parallels the river the entire length and has some spectacular scenic views of the river along the way. There are a few hike-a-bike sections, a few wet spots, two small bridge crossings, amazing large rock features, and a few creek crossings where you'll get your feet wet.

The trail terminates on the Green River at a place know as "The Narrows" which is popular among whitewater kayakers. You can access The Narrows, but it's a really steep hike-a-bike back up and out to continue your ride. It is, however, an excellent place to take a dip in the hotter summer months during a ride.

Not a bike trail. Unless you enjoy carrying your bike long distances while other people, inexplicably not carrying bikes, walk right past you.

Trail needs some TLC. Creek crossings are scrambles with bike. — 1h 45m
