Tuolumne River
OFFERED FROM APRIL-SEPTEMBER*
Tumbling through the Sierra from its headwaters in Yosemite National Park, the Tuolumne River has long been revered as California’s premier whitewater rafting experience. And for good reason: “The T” is a gem. Its steep gradient makes for superb long rapids such as Nemesis, The Squeeze, Gray’s Grindstone and the notorious Clavey Falls (with optional footpath). 18 miles of roadless isolation and limited use permits ensure a primitive wilderness experience. Exquisite side canyons cradle clear pools for swimming; short hikes reveal Gold Rush and Miwok People history and abundant wildlife. Relax and explore while our guides prepare delicious riverside meals and dessert. The Tuolumne proximity to Yosemite and the San Francisco Bay Area make it easily accessible to California travelers. The Main Tuolumne is a classic.
