For those who feel no guilt in relaxing and indulging all their senses, a true wilderness experience awaits on the East Fork of the Carson River. Being 1 of 3 naturally flowing rivers in the eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains, this 21 mile section of class II-III whitewater truly captures the experience of floating down a wild river. In 1988 the East Fork Carson River was added to the California Wild & Scenic River System due to its remarkable surroundings. Starting in the stunningly beautiful Alpine County, the trip begins in pine forests as spectacular snow capped peaks encompass your surroundings. This river is swift and exciting as it flows continuously through the first 9 miles opening into the Nevada High Dessert. Natural geothermal hot springs greet you halfway down the trip inviting you to sink into yet a deeper level of bliss as your guides prepare a delectable lunch. Once back in the boats the river slows down, meandering through a changing landscape of enchanting dessert scenery. Stretches of quiet floats encourage you to breathe in the fresh air and soak in the sun. A trip down the East Fork of the Carson River will sure to give everyone in your group a memorable experience. Its tranquil beauty, fun rapids, and hot springs are perfect for first time rafters and veterans alike. Join us on this exquisite escape into nature’s wonderland.
