Green River, Utah, San Rafael Swell, Moab, Red Rock

Green River

Green River is the east gate to the rugged and remote San Rafael Swell, with thousands of back country opportunities from wilderness to ATV trails and from horseback riding to mountain bike trails.

Green River, Utah

As you might expect from the name, Green River is a haven for river runners, who raft places such as Desolation and Gray canyons upstream and Labyrinth and Stillwater canyons downstream. The town was once a stomping ground for Butch Cassidy and his Wild Bunch. Green River is also host to the John Wesley Powell Museum where you can see the historic boats used by adventurers before the onset of rubber rafts. Play capture the flag at twilight amidst the hoodoos of Goblin Valley State Park, or lose yourself (for awhile, at least) in the folds and canyons of the San Rafael Swell.

Culture and Heritage Attractions
For a glimpse at the early exploration of the Green River by men who lived to tell the tale, be sure and visit the John Wesley Powell Museum, filled with creative displays about these early explorers and their exploits.

Family Fun Activities
At Goblin Valley State Park, the eroded rock hoodoos present an otherworldly hiking experience between Green River and Hanksville off Hwy. 24, (435) 275-4584.
