TRIP OPTION 1: The Crescendo (Building up to Cherry Creek)

Start your trip with 1, 2 or 3 days of rafting on the National Wild and Scenic Tuolumne River—exhilarating Class IV rapids, beautiful hikes up side canyons, remote riverside camping, and stunning scenery. The next portion of your trip is truly the "grand finale"; a day rafting the unparalleled Class V whitewater of Cherry Creek, the uppermost section of the Tuolumne River.

You can choose to book the trips back to back, or you can take a day or more off in between trips to explore the Yosemite area, extend your vacation, or just rest!
