Raft the Carson River
A true family adventure, the East Fork of the Carson River is nestled in the high desert among Jeffrey Pines and Sagebrush. The river twists and turns and the gradient is constant. This section of the river can be done in a full day, or you can break it up into 2 days. Your rafting trip will begin high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, as a constant gradient draws the raft down through sweeping turns and rippling rapids for 21 miles of wilderness solitude. This trip is perfect for families and groups.
The highlight of this river trip is the beautiful natural hot springs on the banks of the Carson River. Wish to stay longer at the wilderness hot springs? Check out our two-day hot springs camping trip!
