When you're planning a trip on the Green and Yampa Rivers in Dinosaur National Monument, this RiverMaps™ guidebook is a must have. Describes rapids and camps, plus USGS maps.
  • Covers both the 43 miles of the Gates of Lodore to Split Mountain section of the Green River and the 46 miles on the Yampa River's Deerlodge Park put-in to its confluence with the Green. Boaters on the Yampa float their final 25 miles on the Green River to the Split Mountain takeout.
  • RiverMaps guidebooks are made by river runners for river runners.
  • These large format books are printed on tough synthetic waterproof paper and spiral bound so they lay flat and can take the waves, splash and wear of a river trip.
  • Opened up, the left side page has mile-by-mile descriptions of major rapids, campsites and features of interest. There are also great color photos that illustrate the text.
  • The right side page features color USGS topographic maps at the scale of 2,000 feet to the inch (1:24,000). There's no better way to keep track of where you are on the river.
  • But wait, there's more. In the front of the book is lots of information about the rivers, the landscape and the flora and fauna.
  • These front eight pages are chock full of Park Service contact info and regulations, weather, geology, archaeology, history, ecology and resource protection wisdom.
  • No matter what other resources you have, this guidebook is really an essential tool for enjoying these magnificent river trips.

          Comments about RiverMaps Green & Yampa in Dinosaur National Monument Guide Book:

          This guide was very useful in preparing for our trip down the Yampa and Green in October and continued to be referred to throughout the journey, while on the river and at the campsites. Its size was not a problem, as it fit in the "captain's box" just fine. (Without it, we would never have known about or found the Bison Petroglyph, just beyond the Cove @ mile 13 either!)

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was prompt and it arrived in fine condition.

                      This river guidebook is easy to use, clearly delivers pertinent information for running the river, provides important details such as where to scout from, what to expect in average water level, directions of how to run each rapid, information about campsites, is waterproof, it also has some great information about the Monument's plants, rock formations and wildlife. I like the fact that the Yampa River and the Green River are in the same guidebook.
