Charging out of Sequoia National Park just east of Visalia lies the Kaweah River, one of America’s steepest rivers. In their classic guidebook California Whitewater, Jim Cassady and Fryar Calhoun describe the Kaweah as running “swift, clear, and free through some of the most exciting rapids in the state”. In other words, only your adrenaline rushes faster than these waters. The upper stretch of river has an average gradient drop of 70′ per mile. The torrential whitewater, beautiful scenery, and its short 3 1/2 hour drive from Southern California convinced us to add the Kaweah trips to our offerings.
