FC: River Rafting On The Middle Fork

1: River Rafting trip on the Middle Fork of the American River. June16, 2008

2: The river begins immediately with boisterous Class III Panic Alley Rapid. For the next two miles, you'll encounter rapid after rapid until we reach Class IV Tunnel Chute Rapid--a frothing 80-foot chute which ends with a six-foot drop just before it empties into a 90-foot tunnel! But the river has just begun. Not until six miles downstream from put-in does the whitewater begin to mellow after the tumultuous Class IV Kanaka Rapid.At this point...

3: you'll time to relax as we float through a calming Class II section. You'll stop to have a freshly prepared deli lunch along the way. After lunch, you'll encounter more easy water before getting to Class IV Chunder Rapid--a five-foot drop that will make you gasp. Immediately after Chunder, you'll watch your guides portage the boats around a Class VI 30-foot waterfall called Ruck-a-Chucky. Then it's back in the boats for a swift succession of five burly Class III-IV rapids before we reach our take-out.
