Fall Rafting: Flow UpdateSeptember 12th, 2011 Malina
Just because the kids are back in school–and by kids of course I mean a bunch of our college-kid river guides–doesn’t mean we’ve packed up for the year and thrown away the last tube of sunblock. Our fair River Office is quieter these days for sure but there are still plenty of options for rafting trips this time of year.
What’s really special this year is Goodwin Canyon, a river we hardly ever get to see with totally unexpected scenery punctuated by some outstanding whitewater. It may not have the most non-stop set of rapids, or the biggest thrills per mile but Goodwin Canyon isn’t a place you’re likely to forget quickly . . .
Of course there’s ol’ reliable, the South Fork of the American River–class III rafting at its best but sans summer crowds. For a bigger thrill, may we suggest the Middle Fork of the American? Sixteen miles of beautiful scenery, class IV whitewater and of course the unforgetable Tunnel Chute rapid . . .
