Continuous Class 3 Rapids!

This East Fork Carson 1/2 day raft trip is a swift flowing Class 3, and requires that everyone has some swimming ability. Swift moving cold water with few eddies require clients being a bit adventurous than some other Class trips like the South Fork American. If you are up for the challenge and Mother Nature has blessed us with adequate snow pack, then its a blast!

This section does not have the advantage of the extra water from Markleeville Creek, which flows into the Carson River about 1.5 miles downstream. Due to that, the season is usually rather short and unpredictable.

We meet near Hangman’s Bridge south of the town of Markleeville, and shuttle upstream to the put-in at “Cave Rock”. The rafting is continuous Class 3 with few eddies for stopping. We take-out at Hangman’s Bridge. Refreshments are served for the shuttle ride back to your vehicles.

Tributary Whitewater Tours operates under permit from the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest and is an equal opportunity service provider.

Travel time is approximately 45 minutes South of South Lake Tahoe, 2.25 hours from Sacramento, and about 4 hours from most Bay Area Locations.
