Truckee River – 1/2 day Verdi Run



This Class 2+ Truckee River Verdi Run is usually ONLY offered when the water flows on the Boca Run are too high. We cannot always guarantee which of the 2 rafting trips will be offered on any day, as it will be dependent of water levels which can change unexpectedly. So on occasions Truckee River rafting trips booked on the Boca Run will be switched to the Verdi Run.
