Branching off of Fossil Point trail, Dry Lake Wash winds its way through rutted sandy washes to the banks of the mighty Green River. Very few trails lead down to clear access to the river like this one. Views of the buttes along the trail and across the river are colorfully scenic and unobstructed by the typical thick desert brush lining the river. The trail is mainly soft sand with deep cross ruts from rainstorms. You'll need high-clearance, four-wheel-drive and durable tires to reach the river bank.  Please follow the gpx track closely to find the cattle gate. Camping was limited to a couple of spots in the rocks of the first wash or the wide-open desert. Because of the potential for flash flooding, camping along the river is not advised.
