Draining the western flank of the Sierra Nevada Mountains is the beautiful American River. This friendly river is a popular destination because it is the perfect place to get acquainted with whitewater.
Rafting the American River can be a great way to go out with a bang after a hiking trip to Tahoe National Forest or Desolation Wildernes, or finish up a more urban service trip with a day of watery relaxation and excitement.
Shoot down Class II and III rapids for a heart-pounding day on the water. In between rapids there will be plenty of time to play in the water and have a picnic lunch on the shore.
If there's time, we'll even check out some natural water slides known only to a select few. A day on the river is the most refreshing end your Sierra Nevada adventure!
