Little Hole Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Little Hole trail is an exceedingly scenic walk that winds through the bottom of Red Canyon on the north shore of the Green River. The canyon’s brilliant colors so impressed John Wesley Powell on his expedition down. If you crave solitude this is the wrong hike, but, for me, watching the fly fishermen ply their skill is an added bonus.

Few rivers offer a more perfect setting for fishing than the Green, and Red Canyon is kept abundantly stocked with rainbow and brown trout. Trout as large as 22 pounds have been caught here. This hike can be done in either direction. The west-to-east route described here is best if you are hiking in the afternoon, as the sun will then be at your back. If, however, you are planning a morning hike, you can avoid having the sun in your face by starting at Little Hole rather than the dam."
