For those looking for a more secluded Class 4 trip than the American River near Mt. Shasta and Oregon! This river trip offers some of the most memorable whitewater rafting Class 4+ moments including, “Caldera” and “Hells Corner”. 

A trip to this exciting Northern California river is definitely well worth it for a 1 or 2 day whitewater rafting trip! The wild life is abundant with blue herons, bald & golden eagles, ospreys, Canada geese and deer. The caves along route are home to the protected Townsend’s Big Eared Bats. The area was inhabited by the Indians and some historic remains from old mines and ranches remain.

There are many other recreation opportunities within the Klamath & Shasta National Forests and near Lake Shasta. Within a short distance of our Weed meeting location there is plentiful camping, accommodations & hot springs. The lively town of Ashland, Oregon (65 miles north) also offers many places to stay and the opportunity for some culture at its famed Shakespeare Festival.

Airport pick-up may be available from Redding, CA or Weed, CA with private or charter flights.

The Upper Klamath is currently a dam controlled river giving us consistent flows all summer long from the J.C. Boyle Powerhouse. The Klamath River Restoration Project is set to begin in 2020 with the removal of 4 dams including JC Boyle. Although we are excited for the Klamath River to be restored to her natural splendor, it may change the way we use the river. Be sure to check it out in 2019, possibly the last year to see the Upper Klamath River the way it is now! Learn more at AmericanRivers.org.
