The best of both worlds - Warm summer days and a cool flowing river.
The Klamath’s largest tributary, the Trinity river, forms the southern boundary to the rugged Salmon-Trinity mountains. Located in a wooded canyon west of historic Weaverville, it flows through a region long revered for its scenic beauty.
Easily accessible and a welcome alternative to the crowded American River, it is fast becoming one of our more popular summer trips. With many Class 2 and 3 rapids, the Trinity is ideal for summer rafting and inflatable kayaking—warm days and a cool flowing.
A day of whitewater rafting is the perfect complement to camping in the backcountry, exploring old mining towns, or fishing the lakes and streams of the Trinity Alps.

Day by Day Itinerary
About The Operator:
Turtle River Rafting Co.
Mount Shasta, CA
Turtle River Rafting Company is based in Mount Shasta, California just below the Oregon border. We have trips on six rivers in the mountains surrounding our home in addition to the Owyhee River in the high-desert of southern Oregon. The rivers running through the Siskiyou and Marble mountains offer some of the best whitewater rafting in the western United States. This rugged, mountainous country is also treasured for its solitude, exceptional wildlife, and fabulous scenery. We invite you to travel with us on a river rafting adventure and share our love of whitewater, wilderness, and friendship.
Safety is a top priority at Turtle River. Now in our fourth decade of operation, most of our guides have been running rivers for 8 to 29 years. All are certified in first-aid and CPR and many have Swiftwater Rescue training & EMT certification.
From April through September, we offer 1- to 6-day river rafting vacations: one- & two-day river trips where families can take children as young as four; more adventurous multi-day wilderness journeys; and some of the wildest Class 4 and Class 5 whitewater in California and Oregon.
