Hero: Green River Banks

Green River Banks is a 3.8-mile 4x4 trail that travels along the soft banks of the mighty Green. The trail has a variety of different terrain to navigate. From rocky desert cliffs, you'll drop down to the wooded shoreline with its mix of super soft dirt and sand. There are deep washouts to dodge and traverse as you work your way through a small section of private property. Thankfully, they allow us to travel in such a beautiful area. After turning up the scrub brush lined wash, the terrain turns Moon-like. Not a single plant grows on this alien landscape. The trail winds over dirt mounds and off-camber washouts, eventually climbing the most challenging obstacle on the route, a very deep washout halfway up. There is no bypass. You will need low-range gearing and good suspension articulation. It's easy to slip on the dirt and get into trouble. Disconnect those sway bars! Don't attempt this trail if it has recently rained. It will be impassable.

Camping is limited to the start of the trail at the end of Augar Road. There are lovely camp spots on the cliffs above the river, but they can be windy, especially in springtime. You can find all your camping supplies and services in the nearby Green River, Utah.
