Here is a schedule of where we feel the best spectating will be and when. SAFETY FIRST…make sure you get off the trail when racers are coming through and be sure to practice river safety. The rocks around the river are slick and dangerous. Also please remember it is illegal to drink within 50 feet of the Green River.
