Test Your Skill Rafting the American River Middle Fork

If you’re too advanced for the South Fork and not skilled enough for the North Fork, the perfect excursion for you may be rafting the American River Middle Fork. The Middle Fork is, for the most part, considered an intermediate river experience. The minimum age to participate is 14. The only rapid that gives some people pause on this trip is the Tunnel Chute, a thrilling roller coaster of a ride through a narrow chute into a flat water tunnel. Anxious travelers always have the option of walking around this rapid.
