Rafting the Smith river


The Smith River is one of the loveliest wilderness whitewater runs in the country. 

While paddling next to giant redwoods trees, the four forks of the Smith make up the only complete river system in California because it is entirely undammed. 

The Smith is considered a “rainy season” river run, only available in the winter and late spring, but it’s clean, fun water is well worth it. The Smith offers a variety of runs for every level of expertise.
