Wenatchee River

The Wenatchee is a delight for beginners and veterans alike. From Rock 'N Roll to Drunkard's Drop and Gorilla Falls to the Suffocator, this is the stuff of which adventure is made. Coursing through the haystacks and hydraulics, one gets the feeling he is strictly a visitor in an untamed environment. Find out why this is the Northwest's most popular whitewater voyage.

Season and Water Source: The Wenatchee drains the east slopes of the Cascades. Melting snow is the major water source. Thus, the Wenatchee is best rafted during May, June, and July. In years of heavy snowpack, the river can be run well into August.

Minimum Age of Participants: 10
