The Middle Fork of the American is the perfect mix of thrills and amazing scenery. This Class IV river is ideal for the thrill-seekers, experienced rafters or athletic beginners. With 18 miles of whitewater this adventure is sure to thrill. Experience the unique tunnel chute rapid; a tunnel blasted through the mountain back in the gold mining era. We will camp 2 nights right on the South Fork American River in Lotus, CA and visit the Marshall Gold Discovery State Park where the California Gold Rush began. On the way home we will make a stop in Old Town Sacramento before returning to CSUSB.
