Lodore Canyon thrust Major Powell into his first real whitewater on his 1869 expedition. His adventure lives on in the rapids he named: Disaster Falls, Triplet Falls and Hell's Half Mile.

This 44-mile stretch of the Green River, called the "Queen of Rivers," cuts through the High Uinta Range traversing lands of alpine forests and desert slick rock. These are Utah's highest mountains (King's Peak: 13,400') and the only range of the Rockies to run east/west.

The Gates of Lodore is a first-class river experience, yet it only takes four days.

Tour Itinerary:

One of the advantages of a river trip is the flexibility of the daily itinerary. It can vary widely from one trip to the next based on group desires, Mother Nature, and courtesy for other groups on the river. This typical itinerary illustrates a four-day trip through Lodore Canyon.

Day 1 - Meet party at headquarters in Vernal, Utah. Three-hour bus ride to Brown's Park National Wildlife Refuge, the site of the put-in. Pass through the Gates of Lodore and encounter Upper and Lower Disaster Falls.

Day 2 - The "Gates" mark the beginning of High Desert country - the Colorado Plateau - and as the canyon narrows, more rapids emerge: Harp Falls, Triplet Falls, and Hell's Half Mile. Hike at Powell's Rippling Brook and Falls.

Day 3 - At the confluence of the Green and Yampa Rivers at Echo Park, the canyon widens before the river circles Steamboat Rock. Here the Green River enters Whirlpool Canyon. The afternoon may be spent at Jones Hole Creek - a blue-ribbon trout stream with side canyon petroglyphs and waterfall.

Day 4 - Peaceful morning in Rainbow and Island Park areas before entering another massive gorge. The Green's powerful forces cut laterally through Split Mountain's uplifted and colorful core. Rapids abound before the take out and a 35-minute ride back to Vernal.

Dinosaur weather - In the early and late seasons (May, early June and September) temperatures in Dinosaur average 55 to 70 degrees during the day and 50 to 60 degrees at night. In late June through August, daytime temperatures are between 80 and 90 degrees with nighttime temperatures 60 to 70 degrees. A little rain can happen, and can cool temperatures considerably. With this in mind we recommend you have a rain suit, polypropylene underwear, (fleece top and pants are nice in cool weather too) and a light tent. If you reserved a rental unit with us when you booked your river trip, we will have a tent and rain gear for you. There will also be sun, so bring a hat and plenty of suntan lotion and/or sunscreens.

Notes:
Airfare is not included in the tour price.

Adults - $810.00;
Children ages 8-18 and Seniors 65+ - $695.00.
