This 17 mile trip is a Middle Fork extravaganza for those of you wanting a lot of excitement in one, very full day. We meet you in the town of Auburn after breakfast (on your own) and head for put-in. We’ll be on the river early, running the Tunnel Chute and lots of other exciting rapids as well as floating and paddling the calmer stretches of the river. We stop for a picnic lunch along the way and at take-out in the late afternoon, you can look forward to cold drinks at the end of a long and very exciting day.
The Two-day Middle Fork American wilderness trip is a delightful combination of exciting intermediate and some advanced rafting along with plenty of time to relax and truly enjoy this remote and beautiful river canyon. You’ll meet us in Auburn the morning of the trip (or as an option the afternoon or evening prior at our base camp in Lotus) for the short 45 minute drive to put-in just below Oxbow Reservoir just outside Foresthill, Ca.
The chance to combine another river with the Middle Fork for an outstanding two-day adventure happens each spring! Combine the Gorge Run of the South Fork American with a Middle Fork run for a springtime extravaganza! Camp at our South Fork camp, enjoying the “outdoor living” of our wilderness setting.
Here is the chance to get an intermediate and advanced river in this rocking combo! Available only in May, and possibly early June, depending on water levels. This combo gives you the opportunity to get in a lot of river miles while experiencing great intermediate and advanced level rapids. Meet us at our South Fork American campsite the morning of your trip where we will be camping that night. We raft both the North Fork and the Middle Fork of the American, enjoying the area’s most challenging rapids on this two-day extravaganza!
