Advanced Rafting In Northern California: Tuolumne River

White Water Rafting – MODESTO – California offers white water rafting trips for all different skill levels, but sometimes finding a great advanced rafting trip can be tough. I recently rafted the Tuolumne River near Modesto, California and I am happy to report that it is one of the best California rafting trips for experts that I’ve come across. The Northern California white water rafting destination is really in a class of its own!

Raft The Tuolumne River In Modesto, California

The Tuolumne River is an exciting destination for advanced white water rafting in Northern California and features mostly Class IV+ rapids. Here you can experience the spectacular beauty of Yosemite National Park as you enjoy top notch rafting. Longtime rafter Ted Bilton of the World Rafting Association says, “The Tuolumne River combines the beauty of Yosemite National Park with the thrills of class IV whitewater rafting. This trip is offered seven months out of the year so there’s plenty of room to fit this rafting adventure into your busy schedule.”

Tuolumne River Rafting: Experts Only

There are no children allowed on Tuolumne River rafting trips, though 14 year olds and up may go if they have the prior experience. Trips down the Tuolumne are offered as one, two or three-day adventures and include camping and meals. All Tuolumne River rafting trips put in just west of Yosemite National Park and take out at Ward Ferry. I highly recommend Adventure Connection as your Tuolumne River rafting outfitter. I found them on the California Rafting Alliance website and I can tell you they offer excellent California rafting trips!
