Optional 5 Mile Run Route - Hike in one mile from Cronan Ranch Trailhead on Highway 49 and join the group at mile 6.5. From there, you will run the final 4 miles to Greenwood Creek River Access with the group. Our guides will coordinate this alternative route.
Professional whitewater raft guide service will be provided. Greenwood Creek to Salmon Falls stretch of whitewater is +9 miles long. It is particularly popular with those seeking to do a longer half-day trip. The trip begins with moderate Class II whitewater, which serves as a warm-up for the exciting rapids in the Gorge.
Event's current local time: 10:35 PM PT
The first Class III rapid is Fowler’s Rock, recognizable by the large boulder in the middle of the river. Entrance into the Gorge occurs after the third sighting of the “Lollipop Tree,” an odd tree with a circle of leaves, situated on top of a distant hill.
Once boaters enter the gorge, they’re greeted with a series of Class III rapids, including Satan’s Cesspool, Son of Satan’s, Scissors, Bouncing Rock, Pre-Op, Hospital Bar, and Recovery Room. At lower water levels, an additional Class III rapid is Surprise.
