River Runs Kayaking Whitewater


The Whitewater River Run in California is a popular destination for thrill-seekers looking to experience a challenging and exciting whitewater adventure. The ideal streamflow range for this run is between 500 and 1,000 cubic feet per second (cfs), which provides a fast-paced, technical ride with plenty of rapids and obstacles to navigate.

The class rating for this run is class III-IV, meaning that it is moderately difficult and requires some skill and experience to navigate safely. The segment mileage for the run is approximately 3.5 miles, beginning at the Ventana Wilderness Boundary and ending at the Nf Boundary.

Specific rapids and obstacles along the Whitewater River Run include "The Chute," a tight, technical section that requires precise maneuvering; "The Notch," a narrow chute with a tricky entrance; and "S-Curve," a series of sharp turns and drops that require quick reflexes and good balance.

There are specific regulations in place for the Whitewater River Run, such as the requirement for all boaters to wear a personal flotation device (PFD) at all times on the water. Additionally, motorized boats are not allowed on this stretch of the river, and all boaters must follow Leave No Trace principles to minimize their impact on the surrounding wilderness area.
