Los Angeles River Rafting

While Southern California is not exactly known for its rivers or its rafting, there is actually quite a lot of outstanding whitewater within a few hours of Los Angeles. Most Los Angeleans head north and raft the numerous runs on the Kern, Kaweah, or Kings Rivers. Spectacular scenery, awesome hotsprings, and great rapids ranging from class II to some of the toughest class V+ whitewater in California make these rivers a must-do. Kernville (where most Kern outfitters are located) is the boating mecca for Southern California.
