Women’s River Rafting & Yoga Trip
Green River Rafting – Lodore Canyon
About this Trip

Image

There isn't a better yoga studio than Lodore Canyon in the heart of Dinosaur National Monument.  Framed between two steep and beautiful canyon walls, this section of the Green River winds through the Unita Mountains offering up some of the best beaches in the West! These picturesque refuges are ideal places to make camp, practice yoga and restore your inner balance. Let our expert river-guides-turned-chefs prepare your meals to keep your body and mind fueled for this holistic respite. While this women's only trip provides a safe place to practice your craft it still includes quite a bit of adrenaline in the way of world class whitewater rapids! We also bring inflatable kayaks for some solo adventure.  Each day encounter new and thrilling obstacles to get through; the river mirroring your inner meditative practice every stroke of the way.

The Green River cuts like a knife through Lodore Canyon from the top of Dinosaur National Monument through its heart. At the confluence with the Yampa river this trip takes you through Echo Park & Whirlpool Canyon before floating you into Island Park. Hold on tight for the last 8 miles of whitewater through the center of a mountain before reaching the Split Mountain takeout.

Itinerary

Image

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 your party at our headquarters in Vernal, Utah at 7:00 a.m., Mountain Time. There we will issue your waterproof bags and you can buy any last minute items from our accessories store at this time (see our packing checklist for a list of items you can find at our store).  We then take a three-hour scenic van ride to Brown's Park National Wildlife Refuge, the site of the put-in.  Pass through the Gates of Lodore and encounter John Wesley Powell’s notoriously named Disaster Falls.

Day 2:  The "Gates" mark the beginning of High Desert country - the Colorado Plateau – in what is deemed an ecological transition-zone; a landscape teaming with wildlife.  As the canyon narrows, more rapids emerge: Harp Falls, Triplet Falls, and Hell's Half Mile. Hike at Rippling Brook and discover a secluded waterfall.

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 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 Island and Rainbow Park 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. Our expected time of arrival back at our headquarters is about 4:00 p.m.

As mentioned earlier, this is a sample itinerary and should not be thought of as the trip you will experience.  It is intended to give an idea of what the trip will be like. It could also be exactly what you do.  Keep an open mind, be flexible, go with the flow, and enjoy!
