Our class 4 trips can be best described as... awesome rapids, amazing scenery and pristine wilderness. You don't need to have experience but everyone needs to be in good athletic shape and have swimming ability. We have Class 4 river adventures on 2 sections of the American River and also the North Fork Yuba. We run our class 4 trips as private charters only. It will be your own group of paddlers in each raft. Our private charters require at least 6 persons to book. We require you to fill your raft(s) with 4 to 6 persons per raft.
2017 Projections - The class 4 North Fork American River will run in May through mid June in 2017. The class 4 & 5 North Yuba will be raftable from mid June through mid July. The class 3 and 4 Middle Fork American River will be too high to raft until mid July but is an excellent choice for an adventurous trip in late July through September. All trips include lunch and a half dozen or more class 4 rapids. Scenery is amazing on all of these rivers.
Beyond Limits' most experienced guides conduct our Class 4 trips daily. If you have a guide request please feel free to include this on your online reservation.
