Rockwood Gorge Whitewater Rafting

Quick Details

Raft'n Rail - Rockwood Box w/ train ticket

Paddle Through Rockwood Gorge!

Paddling through Rockwood Gorge is one of the most incredible outdoor experiences. During peak runoff, this section of the river is unnavigable for commercial rafts. As the river level drops in late July and August, this gorge becomes a playground of class III-IV rapids.

We get dropped off by the train at the confluence of Cascade Creek or Tank Creek. After getting geared up, we warm up with 4 miles of class III-IV rapids before we get to the entrance to the gorge. The length of the gorge runs 3 miles and is stacked with steep and technical rapids. Within the walls, we take our time to scout “Red Wall” and the “Guardian,” which are class IV rapids. Satisfaction is the best way to describe the feeling once we reach the takeout.
