Noon – Meet @ SpringHill Suites in Auburn, CA (We meet in the afternoon, so be sure to have a good lunch before you arrive. )

We transport into the Middle Fork American Canyon. You will get glimpses of the river flowing far below as we descend. At the put-in you will receive personal flotation devices, paddles & helmets and pre-trip instruction. There is a professional river guide on each raft, and if you rented a kayak they will be giving instructions to those people as well.

Along this 7 mile river trip there are safe beach areas for us to stop along the way for picnicking and play, and possible side hikes with waterfalls at the end! Wildlife sightings are often and you may see ducks, deer, heron and fish. At certain times there are blackberry bushes offering the most amazing fruit, we will stop and pick some if we see them!

At the take-out the guides load the equipment and we shuttle you back to your original meeting location.

5:00pm Arrival back @ SpringHill Suites – extend your stay with a night at the hotel (psst they have a pool!)
