03/07/18 White Water Rafting Kern River
A river rafter’s jewel in the heart of Sequoia National Forest, yet only three hours from Los Angeles. With river sections ranging from mild wave trains to wild roller coasters, there is Kern River whitewater rafting fun for everyone, from beginners to experts. While we strive to have all of our trips run, sometimes mother nature has other ideas. We plan trips that historically have run during late February and early May. If there is too much or to little water we will find an alternative river and or cancel the trip.
