Half Day Raft Trip Truckee River
This half-day whitewater rafting trip on the Lower Gorge of the Truckee River is offered twice daily and is great for families and groups. The Truckee River begins with relaxing Class II boulder gardens and swimming pools and increases in intensity. Half way through the trip, the rapids become larger and closer together until we reach the top of the Floriston Gorge. The river narrows, becomes steeper, and descends its last mile through a series of Class III and III+ rapids including Jaws and the Bronco Rapids. Hang on!
