The Chili Bar River Run in California is a thrilling experience for any experienced rafter. With Class III and IV rapids, this section of the South Fork American River is not for beginners. Obstacles like Meatgrinder and Troublemaker make for an exciting ride, while less experienced rafters can still enjoy the scenery from the calmer stretches of water.
