A rafting trip down the Toutle River is an adventure through rumbling rapids in the shadow of Mt. St. Helens. The eruption of Mt. St. Helens in the 1980s created enormous mudflows that charged down the valley, destroying almost everything in its path. The flood plain is littered with downed trees and scarred with empty river channels. The geographic implications of volcanic aftermath only add to this rivers beauty.
The constantly shifting silt of the riverbed creates unpredictable and exciting rapids. There are huge bolder gardens, big waves and bottomless holes. This is a unique whitewater-rafting trip with a landscape unlike any other in the state.
