Bowknot Bend Overlook

From the Bowknot Bend Overlook, you can see where the Green River doubles back on itself 6.8 miles downstream.

Bowknot Bend is a 6.8-mile meander of the Green River that doubles back on itself so close that the two sections of river are just 0.2 miles apart. A short scramble up to the ridge gives amazing views of the Green River on both sides.

Bowknot Bend Overlook at EveryTrail

Bowknot Bend is a 6.8-mile meander of the river that doubles back on itself so close that the two sections of river are just 0.2 miles apart. The cliffs between the two sections of river are much lower at this point, so the hike is actually quite doable.

Anthony and I hiked up to the Bowknot Bend Overlook where we could see the river on both sides of the cliff. The rest of our group continued paddling without us.

Then we scrambled back down and jumped in the canoe and raced to catch up with the rest of the group. It turns out we could have paddled a little slower because we caught up to them in just 2 miles. They had stopped at a sandbar just two minutes before we got there.
