Beginning just outside of Colfax CA, the North Fork American River- Chamberlain Falls Run offers a classic California river trip. This exciting stretch of whitewater is a classic for its large house sized granite boulders, narrow chutes, and steep fun technical rapids. The river cuts through one of the most scenic canyons in the American River drainage so be ready for an extraordinary experience. Class IV rapids begin immediately, one after another. Around each bend, rapids challenge the best of boaters. Be ready to paddle as your guides navigate through the turbulent waters. A break for lunch gives you the opportunity to relax by this naturally flowing river, for the North Fork American River is uninhibited by upstream dams, creating a wild river experience. Since there are no upstream dams this run is only available during spring snowmelt and high water seasons, so it’s important to plan ahead. Come join us on an adrenaline filled day. This trip will sure to give you an amazing experience not available elsewhere.
