The Green River has a bad reputation, through no fault of its own. It has faced the common challenges of many American rivers that ?ow through urban areas: pollution, industrial uses, neglect. But in true American fashion, let’s ignore all those problems and instead recognize this river as a historic waterway, important in Native American and early pioneer settlement. A ride along the river presents a bit of the area’s history as well as a view of the suburban development that’s happening south of Seattle. It also provides a great link to other south King County rides.
