The Gates of Lodore Experience
The Gates of Lodore on The Green River is one of the most popular trips Sheri Griffith Expeditions runs. It offers all the elements of a classic river trip: great hikes, exciting whitewater, beautiful beaches and colorful history. This is a journey into a spectacular wilderness. This trip has lots of activities and action. You can choose between paddling with friends in a paddleboat, taking on the rapids with one of our inflatable kayaks or relaxing in one of the oarboats.
The scenery is a combination of Rocky Mountain trees and plants, then drifting down into the dessert canyon country. Abundant wildlife includes deer, bighorn sheep, eagles, trout, and hawks around almost every bend. We purposely travel slowly, about 10-15 miles per day, giving us ample time to explore the canyons and take in the Green River and its surrounding wildlife
The Green River through The Gates of Lodore is an awesome stretch of river that cuts right into the great Uintah uplift. You journey next to sheer canyon walls and challenge rapids with names like "Hell's Half Mile" and "Disaster Falls." Days are a blend of high excitement, wonder, rewarding hikes, peace and tranquility.
