In 2014 we have a pretty amazing season lined up on both sections of the T. Which, for those of you in the know, should actually come as a surprise because we were hit with two disasters recently–the Rim Fire, which ended our 2013 Tuolumne and Cherry Creek seasons early, and the continuing California […]
Last summer the Tuolumne River canyon was the epicenter of California’s third largest wildfire in recorded history, abruptly cutting short our rafting season and leaving a moonscape of destruction behind.

AO Rafting owner Scott A got the opportunity to check out the Tuolumne River canyon with the US Forest Service last week. Although still closed to the general public, the Forest Service has been working on the access road to the Tuolumne put-in, and we were lucky enough to be invited along. The excellent state of the road […]
The Good Folks at the Tuolumne River Trust have re-vamped their annual celebration of All Things Tuolumne in light of the Rim Fire. Yes, there will be the usual cocktails, tasty snackies, and hob-nobbing. But this year the focus will […]
UPDATE: (8/28/2013) Not only are we running trips on the South and Middle Forks of the American River, but we are also running guided rafting trips on the Goodwin Canyon run of the lower Stanislaus River in late October.
