Forks Of The Kern River Rafting

Class IV-V: Experienced Only
April - July

You get it ALL on the Forks when you commit! The Forks of the Kern is arguably the longest Class V wilderness, river trip in the country. You get nearly 20 miles of steep Class IV & V whitewater fun that demands all the commitment and skill that you have to offer. We work with you, the river, and even the River God on these runs! This is a true wilderness experience. Explore the deep solitude and awesome sights of this beautiful river canyon that only a relatively talented few can experience. Minimum age is 16 years old.
