It is hard to ever get too much of a good thing. This is certainly true inside this 2000’ deep wilderness canyon and on the Middle Fork of the American River. While 1-Day and 2-Day trips are worthwhile adventures, 3-Day trips are the best way to enjoy this California gem if you want to experience all it has to offer.
This special place is located only 17 miles from Auburn and Hwy 80, but it makes you feel like you are thousands of miles away from civilization and the daily grind. The canyon provides amazing scenery around every turn and side creeks with swimming holes and waterfalls to explore and enjoy. This is a true expedition style trip because we carry everything into the wilderness area on luggage rafts and stop at beautiful remote beaches to camp along the way.
Because we are not in a rush to finish the 16-mile journey, we have time to linger, relax, spend time with family and friends, stargaze, and participate in fun extracurricular activities like kayaking and inner tubing.
Three days on the Middle Fork of the American River will energize the soul for weeks, months, and even years.
The itinerary above may be altered due to a range of variables, including river flow levels, water release schedules, time of year, and other factors. Contact us if you have any questions.
"My son (12) and I wanted to spend sometime bonding in nature on an adventure, and this is exactly what was provided. All Outdoors was well organized, provided excellent food, thrilling rapids, adventurous hikes, and a lifelong special memory to my family. I highly recommend this company for anyone wanting to enjoy a well planned outdoor adventure."
