Your Upper "K" trip begins with a fun Class II-III five-mile warm-up starting with the Class III Osprey Rapid. This is the perfect time to get in the rhythm of paddling as a team and to enjoy the wildlife and scenery in the Upper Klamath River canyon. When we stop for lunch, you'll enjoy a gourmet deli sandwich lunch, freshly prepared by your guides. After lunch, the river gets steeper and more challenging as we enter Hell's Corner Gorge, six miles of continuous Class IV whitewater rapids. The excitement begins below the historic Frain Ranch starting with Caldera, a long, steep, technical chute that will test your paddling skills and get your adrenaline pumping. Just below Caldera, rapids such as Branding Iron and Satan's Gate lead into Hell's Corner, a half-mile Class IV+ thriller that ends with a steep drop called the Dragon's Tooth. Following Hell's Corner, there are numerous Class IV rapids including Scarface, Ambush, Snag Island Falls, and Stateline Falls, at the California-Oregon border.
