Smith River Rafting

Description

The Smith River provides some of the loveliest rafting in all of Northern California.

The Smith River is unique in that it is the only complete river system in California that it is entirely undammed.  Because there are no dams, the river is only accessible to river runners during the "Rainy Season".  The rainy season typically begins in November and usually ends sometime in May.  River flows can sometimes be hard to predict but it’s clean, fun water is well worth it.  The Smith offers a variety of runs for every level of expertise. The most popular is the Lower Smith float trip (very mild) through the Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park.
