The Scott River, like the Cal-Salmon is one of the premiere and most thrilling California class V springtime whitewater rafting rivers. A sister to the California Salmon River located about 45 minutes from each other, they share many of the same attributes. It is an incredible and seldom run river with technical and continuous class IV and V rapids.
The Scott River is a non-stop high adventure trip set in a very remote lush forest canyon with an abundance of wildlife. The river is fast and furious offering exciting and thrilling rapids like Boulder Creek Falls, White House, Tompkins Creek Falls, and Schuler Gulch and is recommended only for those who have prior Class 3+ to Class 4 paddling experience.
Northern California’s Scott river is a perfect day trip from Ashland & Mt. Shasta for experienced paddlers looking for a classic Class V whitewater adventure. We highly recommend adding the Scott River trip with our 2, 3 or 4 day California Salmon River trips, and making it a Grand Slam adventure of class 4 – 5 whitewater rafting at its purest.
