Rock, Rattle, Roll and Relax
MRA’s most action packed day in the forest encompasses climbing, biking and paddling! We begin with a 2,000’ single-track mountain bike descent, repel for 100’ on granite (as a warm-up) and switch over to an 85’ rock face climb back to our repel origin.
After a fantastic deli-style lunch in the heart of the forest, we coax you back on to your mountain bikes to complete the cruise down to the Valley floor to a welcoming MRA shuttle. Grab your pfd’s and paddle because it’s time to roll down the Wild & Scenic Kern River in a single or tandem inflatable kayak. Dinners and/or happy hour available upon request (not included). We can further customize this package by adding camping if you are interested, just let us know.
