Early Season Special: Lower Middle Fork American River Rafting Trip - Class 2, Great for Kids

DESCRIPTION

The Lower Middle Fork American River is a beautiful, almost wilderness rafting trip located in California's Gold Country near Auburn. It is a great choice for the younger or more timid child, and kids as young as 4 years can safely raft. It is also a great trip for grandparents or the less able-bodied. Inflatable kayaks can be shared for some added rafting adventure for older youths and adults, so the trip can accommodate a diverse group quite happily.

The Lower Middle Fork American rafting trip is more relaxed, mellower, and much less traveled than the nearby South Fork American river. It is close to civilization, yet it is possible to feel that you are really getting away from it all. This river is a gem, though few outfitters offer this raft trip and group sizes are usually small. The river flows through the steep, rugged and forested canyons of the Auburn State Recreation Area.

There are safe beach areas for picnicking and play, together with side hikes up creeks into shady dells with waterfalls. Very few people are seen on this raft trip, but we often see nesting ducks, deer, heron and jumping fish. Late in the season, we also stop to pick the most incredibly juicy blackberries.
