Rafting the American River with young children

Contrary to popular belief, rafting the American River isn’t just for experts with a thrill for sheer drops and terrifying rapids. There are three forks in the river, each with its own experience level and rating. South Fork of the American River whitewater rafting is the easiest, with a lower age limit of 7 years old, and has just enough twists, bends and excitement to get a person interested in learning more about the activity.
