One Day on the Upper Kern River

Class V Thunder Run

Adrenaline junkies will love this trip. Mile for mile this is the most action-packed day of white water the Upper Kern has to offer. We start this day out with a swim through a class II-III section that allows everyone to demonstrate their fitness and assess what it’s like to have an “out of boat experience.” Then we head up river to warm up on a class IV-IV+ section before taking on the class V rapids that are sure to get everyone soaked and exhausted. We enjoy an awesome riverside deli-style lunch in between runs. 16-18 years old and up, depending on water levels.
