Goodwin Canyon Returns: Special Event and Itinerary Added!

September 6th, 2011 aorafting

Every 5-7 years Goodwin Canyon, a Class IV-IV+ river, makes an appearance and keeps us beggin’ for more! This year is one of those years and we’re not going to let it go until we’ve experienced all it has to offer. In addition to our normal 1-Day itinerary, we’re celebrating this river with a special event and itinerary option! Here’s more info:

Special Event: Goodwin Canyon Days!

Since this run is only available once or twice a decade, we are celebrating the rare opportunity to experience this river and beautiful canyon with Goodwin Canyon Days! On three separate days at the end of September, we will be offering an itinerary that maximizes your opportunity to experience Goodwin. These celebratory trips include:

  • A morning run through Goodwin Canyon (meet time 9am)
  • BBQ lunch at Stanislaus River Park.
  • A second afternoon run through Goodwin Canyon that will end between 4 and 5pm*

When: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, September 23, 24, 25
Cost: $154 per person ** (no discounts are available with this special offer)

Space is limited so sign up early!

*For those who do not wish to partake in the second run after the BBQ, there is an option to enjoy the Stanislaus River Park Museum and the small, historic town of Knights Ferry. Both are within short walking distance from the river.

Special Itinerary Option: Friday “Quickies”

Our new Friday afternoon “Quickie” option covers the same stretch of river as a 1-Day Goodwin Canyon trip, but it doesn’t include lunch and meets later in the day at 3pm. So take the afternoon off and start your weekend the right way! It’s located only 90 miles east of the Bay Area, so it’s the perfect mini getaway.

When: September 16-October 28, Friday afternoons
Cost: $119 per person **
