This White Water Adventure In Northern California Is An Outdoor Lover’s Dream
There’s no denying the fact that Northern California is an outdoor lover’s paradise. With so many adventures to be had, the only problem is finding the time to do them all. With summer in full swing, finding a water-based adventure might be on your list. If so, then you should definitely consider checking out Redwood Rides in Hiouchi. Redwood Rides is one of the most renowned outfitters when it comes to exploring the Northern California coast. Explore both Redwood National and State Parks and Smith River National Recreation Area in a way you never dreamed of before. Make your summer one to remember and embark on this epic white water adventure!
Hiding in the far northeastern corner of the state, the town of Hiouchi sits smack dab in the middle of some of California's most epic wilderness areas. If you consider yourself an adventurer, this region absolutely must be explored. Redwood Rides helps you do that.
Redwood Rides offers a variety of rafting and kayaking trips along the Wild and Scenic Smith River. These beginner-friendly trips are perfect for exploring the Smith River and the towering growths of Redwoods that surround it.
They say there's nothing like the feeling of paddling down the teal-blue waters of this mighty river, and we believe it. They offer rides for whatever type of mood you're in. Whether you feel like a mellow and relaxing float or a high-intensity white water adventure, you'll find the perfect option for you with Redwood Rides.
They offer both half-day and full-day rafting options in which a guide will lead you along the river and show you all the best spots for swimming, paddling, and hiking. You'll also learn all there is to know about this incredible area including the gold mining and logging history, plants and wildlife, and the qualities of redwood forests such as this one.
Although there are definitely rugged and advanced sections of the river, the Smith River is highly regarded as the perfect introduction for beginners. Surrounded by lush forests and 300-foot -tall redwoods, you'll be in heaven as you tackle the river's fun rapids.
Some rafting options even include a mini-adventure into Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park. After meandering down the river for roughly a mile you'll take a break from paddling to take a short hike through the stunning Stout Grove, considered the world's most scenic stand of redwoods.
Summertime is the time for creating adventures and making memories. There's no better way to do both than by floating down the mystical and wonderful Smith River, surrounded by some of the most spectacular scenery California has to offer. Adventure awaits. Are you ready?
