North Yuba River 1-Day Rafting Trips
Class 4 and Class 5 White Water Rafting
Our North Yuba River Rafting trips are a rare treat for white water rafters! The river is free flowing and trips are typically available from March thru May. The season is dependent upon snowmelt and sometimes does run into June and July!
There are several Class 4 and 5 runs on the North Yuba River including the Maytag Run / Goodyears Bar Run, Moss Canyon and Rossosco Ravine, and the Bullards Bar Run. The Maytag run is our most popular trip, although the trip will depend on client abilities, flows and weather.
