Green River Greenbelt Pathway Description

The Greenbelt Pathway offers more than a charming riverside stroll; as it links to a number of open spaces, it highlights the storied history and natural beauty of the region.

The most popular starting point is at Expedition Island, origin of John Wesley Powell's historic exploration of the Colorado River. At this location, you can find a parking and restroom facilities. The trail begins with a crossing of the Green River on the picturesque Trona Bridge. The entire length of the Greenbelt trail follows the south bank of the Green River. After crossing the bridge the trail, 10-foot wide concrete, enters Riverside Memorial Park, which includes picnic areas, fishing access, and whitewater park access. The trail crosses under State Route 530 and begins a half-mile section of boardwalk hugging the riverbank. The trail continues as an asphalt trail for approximately 3 miles. There are traditional benches, swinging benches, scenic overlooks, and picnic areas along the way. The paved portion of the trail ends near the archery range in FMC park after making a final crossing of the Green River. At FMC park there is an additional 1-mile nature walk through Scott's Bottom Nature Area on a crushed aggregate trail.

Parking and Trail Access

The trail can be accessed from any of the parks along its length:

Expedition Island (475 South 2nd East); Jaycee Park (255 Astle); Stratton-Meyers Park (1795 Bridger); Edgewater Park (1810 Montana); FMC Park (175 Scott's Bottom Rd).
