Green River, Wyoming

Green River is located in the south west corner of Wyoming in Sweetwater County (about a 2.5 hour drive from Salt Lake City). An oasis in the High Desert, the city is surrounded by stunning rugged hills and dramatic buttes. The mighty Green River runs through the center of town.

John Wesley Powell launched two famous expeditions of the Green River from "Expedition Island", which is now home to a world class White Water Center and Park.

The Green River Parks and Recreation Department is one of only 79 agencies in the country to be accredited by the Commission for Accreditation of Parks and Recreation Agencies (CAPRA) for excellence in management, administration and operations.

The Green River Bike Park will provide another high quality recreational amenity for the town and will draw riders from around the region to ride the technical elevated trails, pump track, dirt jumps, big berms, rock drops, teeter totters and more.

Directions to the Bike Park:         From Hwy 80, exit 91 Green River/WY-530/E Flaming Gorge Way, Merge onto E Flaming Gorge Way, Take ramp onto Uinta Dr., Turn left on Monroe Ave, Stay straight when Monroe Ave. becomes dirt and enters Stratton-Myers Park, Drive to end of road and park. The Green River Bike Park is across the creek just south of the parking lot.
