The morning Chili Bar white water rafting trip on the South Fork American River is a favorite for first timers and return rafters! This is suitable for non-swimmers at regular summer flows. Kids are welcome, we suggest a min. age of 8 years old and up for first time rafters.
The action starts right off the bat with challenging rapids like Meatgrinder and Triple Threat. The fun continues for 7 miles ending with the big Class 3+ Troublemaker. Immediately following we float thru the Marshall Gold Discovery State Park, a historic park designating the location of the first gold discovered in the rivers, igniting the California Gold Rush!
We continue down at a mellower rate with some fun Class 2 rapids like Old Scary and Barking Dog. The trip ends back at the same camp where we met you.
This is a popular trip for folks traveling to/from the Lake Tahoe & Reno areas.
