The longest trail in the Green River Game Lands trail network, this trail offers a relatively gradual climb up the Green River Gorge. The trail parallels the river the entire length and has some spectacular scenic views of the river along the way. There are a few hike-a-bike sections, a few wet spots, two small bridge crossings, amazing large rock features, and a few creek crossings where you'll get your feet wet.

The trail terminates on the Green River at a place know as "The Narrows" which is popular among whitewater kayakers. You can access The Narrows, but it's a really steep hike-a-bike back up and out to continue your ride. It is, however, an excellent place to take a dip in the hotter summer months during a ride.
