The infamous "Tunnel Chute" is one of the first big rapids encountered and there are numerous Class III-IV rapids in the first six miles, such as Last Chance, Submarine Hole and Kanaka. For the next seven miles, the pace is more mellow, allowing time to appreciate the solitude and beauty of the lush, forested canyon. You may get a glimpse of some wildlife, perhaps a bear, or spot a trout swimming in the incredibly clean and clear Sierra mountain water. We stop for lunch and possible side hikes while plenty of excitement lies ahead.
The Ruck-a-Chucky rapids start just below the entrance of Canyon Creek. A 20' drop through a sieve of huge boulders makes the middle of these three rapids a mandatory portage, but the Class IV drops of Upper and Lower Ruck-a-Chucky are usually runnable. A two mile gorge laced with Class III-IV rapids such as Parallel Parking and Catapult follow.
Its a long but satisfying day. Your rafting finishes after 17 miles, at the old Greenwood Bridge site. The bridge was demolished in the 1954 floods by a 50' wall of water that surged down the canyon after the old Hell Hole Reservoir failed.
Cold beverages are available at the take-out and our vans shuttle you up a rough dirt road to your awaiting vehicles where you can review photos taken earlier. You should be on the road by 5:00pm reminiscing about your day all the way home!
