Southfork Trinity

Discover rugged terrain and lush canyons on our most remote run


Our most remote river, the South Fork of the Trinity, begins at the end of a seldom-traveled road and shares access with a home that can be reached only by crossing the river in a hand-powered tram. The rugged terrain even kept hardy 49ers from settling in its lush canyons. Folded rocks dazzle intrepid paddlers as they relax in the quiet serenity that separates the exciting rapids of this trip. Hardly a trip passes when a bald eagle isn't spotted soaring overhead. Long Class IV rapids collectively referred to as The Three Bears, and a spunky surprise, Goldilocks, round out a great day. The South Forks flows northward in a north/south canyon creating ideal sun exposure for generating springtime warmth. Most years the South Fork has raftable flows into early May.
