The Green River Overlook Trail is both extremely remote and wonderfully scenic. There are good views of Cottonwood Canyon as you ascend one of its walls, and the flat terrain of West Tavaputs Plateau leads you to a 1,000-foot cliff overlooking the Green River. Special Attractions: Extremely remote 4WD spur trail across the West Tavaputs Plateau; Spectacular Green River overlook; More challenging 4WD trail than most in the region. High-clearance 4WDs are recommended, though most stock SUVs are acceptable. Expect a rough road surface with rocks larger than 6 inches, but there will be a reasonable driving line available. Patches of mud are possible but can be readily negotiated; sand may be deep and require lower tire pressures. There may be stream crossings up to 12 inches deep, substantial sections of single-lane shelf road, moderate grades, and sections of moderately loose road surface.
