This well-maintained path wanders along the edge of the Green River as it re-emerges from Flaming Gorge Dam. Wildly popular with fishermen, it is also a family delight. The river is framed by towering canyon walls and stately ponderosa pine. Wildlife abounds along the trail from raptors to river otters. The trail is so scenic, it received a National Scenic Trail designation shortly after its creation.
From Vernal, travel north on Hwy 191 about 36 miles to its intersection with UT Hwy 44. At the well-signed intersection, turn right (you will actually still be on Hwy 191) and travel another 10 miles. Immediately after crossing over Flaming Gorge Dam, a signed right will take you down to the access parking area. One needs to park several hundred feet above the river and walk a few minutes down a well traveled series of switchbacks to the boat launch ramp. The trail begins here just past the restrooms. Please remember that a Recreation Pass is required for parking. The fairly level trail wanders along
Flaming Gorge Country is famous for its world class fishing, boating and family adventures. All set in the scenic splendor of the National Recreation Area.
