Their high quality experiences are created with sustainability in mind, keeping these beautiful environments in great shape for people to enjoy year after year. Class IV rapids on the north fork of the Stan will have you paddling hard through granite gorges, meadows and giant sequoias – the trip ends at Calaveras Big Trees State Park.
