CHERRY CREEK & TUOLUMNE RIVER RAFTING | 2 DAYS & 1 NIGHT

2 day and 1 night advanced whitewater rafting trip in the Sierra foothills just 75 minutes from Yosemite Valley for visitors 16 years old and up.

Join Sierra Mac River Trips for 27 miles of incredible California whitewater on the class V Cherry Creek followed by 1 or 2 days on the Tuolumne River! The 9 mile stretch of Cherry Creek, action-packed, whitewater adventure is not for beginners or the faint of heart and requires a mandatory orientation and test that includes training in swift water swimming, navigation and safety techniques! This intense and demanding stretch of river is comprised of long, nearly continuous whitewater and only short pools. Her rapids are legendary. Among “The Creek’s” unparalleled array of chutes, holes, ledges and gigantic boulders lie Jawbone, Mushroom, Miracle Mile, Lewis’ Leap and Flat Rock Falls. Names you won’t soon forget. With a phenomenally steep gradient averaging 110 feet per mile, the Cherry Creek/Upper Tuolumne run is one of the most challenging (and fun) rafting trips in the U.S. and the standard by which Class V runs are measured. This once in a lifetime experience is just a click away...
