Middle Fork American River (Class III and IV)
Day trips on the Middle Fork are full of excitement and often capsized rafts. This is an exciting trip for those who are looking for more whitewater and excitement than the South Fork provides. Because there is a higher chance of falling overboard on this river, all rafters are required to wear helmets. Prices include lunch, gear, and transportion from a meeting point (usually Quincy).
