The Tuolumne River is considered by many to be the best whitewater trip in California. Its pristine headwaters originate in Yosemite National Park, then surge through eighteen miles of non-stop, Class IV+ rapids. This incredible whitewater adventure includes intricate boulder gardens, rushing cascades and churning holes, which all combine for action-packed paddling from put-in to take-out.
The Wild & Scenic Tuolumne River flows through a beautiful wilderness canyon. The steep hills are lush green in the spring and golden-yellow in the summer, with oak and pine forests flanked by rocky terraces and sandy beaches. Early season wildflowers blanket the canyon in color. Tumbling creeks and glassy pools adorn the river corridor and its side canyons, creating the perfect outdoor experience for rafting, hiking, fishing and swimming.
