Canoe Trip, 5 days down the Green River in Utah
The Green River is particularly suited for newcomers to river camping and to groups who desire a very laid back pace. This Utah canoe trip is an unforgettable odyssey! This spectacular 68-mile section of the Green River, from Crystal Geyser, winds towards Mineral Bottom, just north of Canyonlands National Park. Experience the same trip the Powell Expedition did in 1869. Hike and explore the canyons, see Anasazi Indian ruins, Between the town of Green River, Utah, and Canyonlands National Park is part of the longest stretch of quiet wilderness water in the lower 48 states. As you canoe the Green River, the moving panorama is incomparable. The twisting, looping river winds its way between sheer, colorful sandstone walls, hundreds of feet high. Vast canyon systems and water channels branch in all directions, inviting hiking and exploring, as well as providing excellent camping.

What we're about

While this group is primarily focused on hiking, we also enjoy other forms of outdoor fun such as canoeing, biking, kayaking, camping and backpacking.... and a variety of special events including beach parties, art and holiday walks.

Our success is based in part on our ability to reduce the difficulty of our events while increasing the fun factor, often including a social activity such as picnics that include food and beverage. Our organizers also design conditioning hikes that are intended to enhance aerobic fitness and endurance. We strive to offer the most fun and scenic outdoor activities available to residents of Orange County.... events that are both in and out of area.

Our group is diverse, including young/middle/senior ages, singles and couples, and a mix of people with differing racial/ethnic/cultural/religious/political backgrounds. The unity of the Sunset Hikes Meetup centers on our shared love of fun, outdoor activities.

We do NOT ask for donations to support our administrative costs or charitable pursuits, however we do ask that you actively and enthusiastically participate in our events. So come on out! Make new friends, get some exercise, and enjoy the great outdoors. We are all about having fun!

Check out the "Our Calendar" tab for a schedule of upcoming activities. We look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon....

We welcome you to the Sunrise to Sunset Hiking family!
