GREEN RIVER GORGE

1 day, March and April (a dam controlled river with unpredictable releases)

Palmer to Flaming Geyser Park

14 miles, difficulty Class III & IV

Cost $95.

 

An extraordinary gorge type river on the west side of the Cascades, the Green River is a northwest favorite. A steep 'pool and drop' river, the clear green waters plunge down through narrow, smooth walled channels and large boulder gardens. Lush cedar and fir woods with rain forest qualities dominate the canyon rim. In our opinion, the Green is the prettiest river of the Western Cascades and certainly one of the most 'Bravado' trips we offer when the water is up.

 

A minimum flow of 1,500cfs is needed to raft the Green. At water levels between 2,800 to 3,500cfs, the Green becomes constant whitewater and more demanding than the Skykomish. Since the river is dam controlled, the water levels are not predictable and we seldom know more than a week in advance of a scheduled water release. Those wishing to join this epic adventure must contact the office to sign up for the High Water Hotline. We require swimming ability and previous paddling experience.
