That’s it, the Merced is offline! If you want to raft in the Yosemite Valley area, best turn your attention to the Tuolumne River. It’s not sourced in Yosemite like the Merced is, but it’s still close enough to add on to the family visit to Yosemite National Park. And as a protected Wild and Scenic River, it won’t disappoint after the beautiful wilderness of Yosemite Valley! A remote canyon, solid class III-IV whitewater, and of course your charming Tuolumne hosts, AO Rafting guides, what’s not to love?
