The Gorge Run is our 13 mile American River Rafting one day trip. We meet at 9:30 AM at our CRRE meeting area, where our staff will welcome you and check you in. We then take a short bus ride to the “put-in” where your guides will have all your equipment ready for you. We size you up for pfd’s (life jackets), helmets, and a padde. After a short river safety orientation, we are ready to hop in the rafts. We raft down through some bouncy whitewater for about an hour, then pull off, where you will be served our riverside buffet lunch. After lunch the river builds and then enters the American river GORGE, where the big rapids come at you in quick fashion. There are short pools after each rapid to catch your breath. After finishing up the big ones, we drift slowly down to the “take-out” where our bus will meet you will some cold drinks and snacks for a 30 min bus ride back to the meeting area. Your guides will be there to thank you again and say their farewells.
