North Yuba River Rafting | Class IV And V California Spring White Water Rafting
Spring whitewater rafting on the epic North Yuba river – 1 to 3 day trips!
The free-flowing North Yuba River is a unique rafting experience for the adventurous first timer or return rafter! Accessible from San Francisco, Sacramento and Lake Tahoe this unique river trip is located on the historic Highway 49. The nearby mining towns of Downieville and Sierra City offers restaurants, lodging and camping options, saloons and historic landmarks. There are only 3 outfitters permitted on this river making it much less crowded than the American River closeby. Participants on North Yuba River rafting trips must swim, be in good physical condition, and at certain flows may need to have prior Class IV paddling experience. Wetsuits are usually required for this run. Our min. age for kids is 14 at typical flows, this varies with ability and flows, and we do suggest prior rafting for youths.
