North Fork American River Rafting – Prior California Rafting Experience Recommended
RAFTING FUN & INFORMATION FOR NORTH FORK TRIPS
The North Fork is the premier spring river rafting run in Northern California. This is a natural free flowing river offering some of the most demanding technical rafting at medium/low flows and some of the biggest and baddest rapids at higher flows. The adventure begins with a scenic shuttle ride to our launching point. Here you will meet your guides, receive the safety talk and paddling instructions before the journey begins. Almost immediately, the excitement begins at Slaughters Sluice as the river plunges into a narrow Gorge. Chamberlain Falls, Bogus Thunder and Staircase are just a few of the exciting rapids that await you on the challenging North Fork American. A delicious deli-style lunch buffet is served halfway through the day. After lunch the fun continues as the river eases up and you have a chance to take in the spectacular scenery. Enjoy the scenic shuttle ride back to your cars.
