The Destination
Surrounded by the splendor of Northeastern Utah's Steinaker and Red Fleet State Parks, Vernal is an Old West outpost where cowboy and dinosaur histories collide. Here, you can explore shops full of fossils by day and hear stories of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid by night. After rafting, hiking, and biking in Vernal, head to Dinosaur National Monument. Located on the border between Colorado and Utah, the attraction boasts the Dinosaur Quarry Exhibit Hall—home to 1,500 fossils—as well as several thick canyons and majestic rock formations cut by the Green and Yampa rivers.

Explore Vernal's pioneer sites and prehistoric delights by way of an educational rafting trip on the Green River via the folks from Dinosaur River Expeditions.

The Itinerary
day 1: Start your adventure by meeting your guides and fellow travelers at the Dinosaur River Expeditions office in Vernal at 7 a.m. before departing for the water. Once you arrive at the loading station, prepare for a day of adrenaline-pumping whitewater rapids and relaxing hikes before setting up a comfortable camp under the stars. When it comes to mouthwatering grub, this locally operated company treats your taste buds to freshly prepared meals like lasagna and peach cobbler.

days 2 and 3: Begin each day with a hot breakfast at sunrise before alternating between exhilarating rafting and panoramic hiking adventures. You'll also have plenty of time to kick back at your own pace. Cast a line into the river or simply relax shoreside.

day 4: Visit Rainbow Park and Island Park before rafting through Split Mountain Canyon, which includes a few of the Green River's exhilarating rapids. Later, savor lunch on the beach before boarding the shuttle back to Vernal.
