Redwoods and Rivers

Redwoods and Rivers is a family run rafting company located on the Trinity River in Northern California. For years the Charlton family worked as river guides for other river companies. In 1994, the family started their own company. Their desire was to run quality family rafting trips the way they felt should be done. Therefore, Redwoods and Rivers believes a quality rafting trip should have these important themes:  Safety, Fun, Educational, and Spiritually Rewarding. Staying true to these themes, the company has evolved into one of the more well-known Northern California whitewater rafting outfitters. Redwoods and Rivers is known for their many specialty trips, schools, and group retreats. Even more, they are known for the consistent high-quality river guides graduated from their State University accredited River Guide School.
