We are going white water rafting on the American River! This will be a weekend of rafting, swimming, hiking, and exploring the best things the Placerville region has to offer.

We will be rafting the upper south fork of the American River. There is a class III and a class IV rapid which are good for beginners and intermediate rafters. There are plenty of exciting rapids on this river and you will DEFINITELY get soaked. We rafted the lower south fork (also class III) last year (see below) and it was quite the adventure. We even got to "ride the bull" at the front of the raft! 

In addition to the rafting we will also spend time hiking and wine tasting along the river. We are very close to the Eldorado National Forest, as well as the beautiful Folsom Lake. After the snows this past winter, the lake should be filled to the brim and looking beautiful.

If we decide to head into the forest, then there are countless trails for us to explore. We can check out giant redwoods, quiet meadows, and even a reservoir or two. Heck, if we felt like it we can go all the way to Lake Tahoe for a visit!

When we are not out adventuring, we will be staying at a 4 bedroom, newly remodeled house tucked away on a private Rd on just under an acre, surrounded by tall trees, completely secluded. This is the open and comfy living room.

You're going to have so much fun on this trip that you may never want to leave! Sign up for this adventure now because these spots will not last long!
