We meet in the town of Auburn and meeting times vary from early morning to mid-day depending on our put-in time. After check-in we’ll drive to the put-in where you will receive a safety orientation and review paddling techniques with your guides. The river leaps into intense rapids from the start with almost continuous class 4 runs for the first five miles. Depending on water levels we may scout one of the biggest drops, Chamberlain Falls, for the best run. Lunch on the riverbank will give us a chance to relax and enjoy the stark beauty of this stunning canyon, before more rapids on the lower section!
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!
The chance to combine another river with the North Fork for an outstanding two-day adventure happens each spring! Combine the Gorge Run of the South Fork American with a North Fork run for a springtime extravaganza! Camp at our South Fork camp for two nights, enjoying the “outdoor living” of our wilderness setting.
