The Upper Chili Bar section of the South Fork American River is an excellent run with many exciting class 3 rapids. This 8 mile guided trip includes calm sections of the river interspersed with wonderfully fun whitewater. Its course will take you through the small mining town of Coloma, CA, where James Marshall first discovered gold at Sutter's Mill and changed the course of California history. The excitement comes to a head towards the end of this run with a popular rapid known as "Troublemaker" where you can pose for the photographers!

This river is an excellent option for both the veteran and novice rafter. The flows on the South Fork American River are the most dependable in the state, with guaranteed recreational releases for the next 50 years.

At the end of your trip, a chili dog BBQ lunch will be served at the gorgeous River Park Resort in Lotus, CA. Enjoy a cold beverage and view your exciting trip photos at our River Store. At 1:30 PM, you will board the shuttle bus for a short ride back to your car.
