What many might call the “State of Jefferson”, the region encompassing north of Mt. Shasta and parts of southern Oregon, holds many a solid class IV/V river.

“I finally got a frame! I’ve been using it with pieces from a couple of different frames for my 14′ oarboat. Lots of curious looks running a cat with a slant board I’m still working on perfecting the tiedown for the new frame, but it’s getting closer!I really love this boat!”
Arguably one of the must-do multi-day trips in California, the Tuolumne from Meral’s Pool to Don Pedro Reservoir is a great section of challenging class IV whitewater. The rapids are not for the faint of heart, but the rewards of private beach camps in this canyon near Yosemite are unlimited. Our California Rep rowed a Grey 2012 14′ Guide series on this particular trip, with his wife paddle-guiding a 2011 Yellow & Blue 12′ SL, and another talented guide paddling-guiding a 2010 12-Wide Blood Meridian (Orange & Yellow). While the water has dropped out this season, put the Tuolumne on your list of private trips for next year! Logistics can be challenging, so feel free to drop us a note if you need someone to line you out on how to style your way down this beautiful river. Thanks to world-class whitewater rock-star, Erik Meldrum, for the photos.
