Less than a minute from put-in, you'll crash through Class IV Beginner's Luck which is an immense staircase of drops, descending a total of 15-feet. After that wake-up call, the whitewater keeps coming in tight chutes and boulder-choked passageways like The Claw and Wallet Slot. When the mood strikes, we'll stop for lunch on a forested riverside bank. Back on the water, there are still many Class III-IV challenges waiting downstream. The final rapid is Sequoia Sluice, and because it's one of the biggest rapids, it serves as an appropriate climax to an intense day of rafting.
During periods of high-flows, the itinerary above may be altered.
