The South Fork American River Lotus Run is a rafting trip suitable for younger kids, older seniors and timid rafters. Its an easy guided river trip which contains mild Class 1 & 2 rapids.
We meet at 10:30am in the parking lot for a short shuttle to the put in where pre-trip instruction is given. PFD’s and helmets are fitted, and paddles given out before launching. The group enjoys an easy 4 mile float with fun rapids including ‘Barking Dog’ before we arrive back to our camp.
