The Class V Cherry Creek rafting is the ultimate white water challenge! We pioneered commercial Class V rafting trips on this stretch of river in the 70’s and 80’s, and we are excited to share these thrilling adventures with our guests. It is important to realize that Cherry Creek rafting trips are intense and demanding passenger participation experiences, particularly on the paddle boats, and that a successful Class V run depends on you and your boat team. Located near the northwest border of Yosemite National Park, our Cherry Creek white water trip begins 2 miles upstream from its confluence with the Main Tuolumne and continues unbridled for a total of 9 miles to our take-out just above Lumsden Falls. This intense and demanding stretch of river is comprised of long, nearly continuous whitewater and only short pools. Her rapids are legendary. Among “The Creek’s” unparalleled array of chutes, holes, ledges and gigantic boulders lie Jawbone, Mushroom, Miracle Mile, Lewis’ Leap and Flat Rock Falls.
