The free-flowing Scott River is a sister to the California Salmon and shares many of its attributes, although its season is a bit shorter than the Salmon’s because of the drier climate of Scott River country. This seldom-run river features non-stop high adventure in a lush green canyon with bountiful cascading side creeks.
Although your experienced river guides will ensure a safe passage down the Scott River, this trip is not recommended for beginners. With some of the finest Class IV and V whitewater in the state, paddlers will need to perform tight technical moves around boulder gardens, and steer the raft through huge, adrenaline-pumping drops.
This is a great whitewater rafting day trip for those based out of Ashland and Mt. Shasta, especially for experienced paddlers looking for some serious Class V adventures.
