Are you willing to reach for the maximum whitewater experience? Then look no further. California’s Cherry Creek/Upper Tuolumne rafting trips offer the ultimate Class V rafting adventure. Located near the northwest border of Yosemite National Park, Cherry Creek rafting trips are intense and demanding passenger participation experiences. These trips aren’t for the timid. Minimum age is 15-18 depending on water levels. Participants need to be in good physical condition and be ready to work it! With a phenomenally steep gradient averaging 110 feet per mile, the Cherry Creek/Upper Tuolumne is considered the most challenging (and fun) rafting trip in California, and the standard by which Class V runs are measured.
