Trip Overview – The Rumble
Experience the beauty and fun on the stretch of river we call The Rumble. It’s a family friendly raft trip with splash class II-III rapids, sun soaking stretches and amazing canyon scenery found only on a federally designated wild and scenic river like the Upper Klamath.
We’ll meet at 9:30 in the morning at the ROE office, and prepare you for a fantastic adventure on the river. You’ll ride with us to the Spring Island river put in about 40 minutes away. After the guides provide a safety briefing we’ll push off downriver through some spectacular scenery. ROE will provide the gear you need and the guides will bring their knowledge and experience. Our guides are always ready to coach you down the river. They’ll also let you know when you can have some fun splashing through the rapids or swimming in the calm spots. The area is rich in cultural, historic and natural treasures and the guides are excited to share all they know about the area with you.
Midway down river we stop for a snack of watermelon, chips, salsa and bottled water. After our river snack we’ll continue downriver, splashing our way to the take-out near the historic Frain Ranch. The six-mile river trip has a great mix of friendly whitewater, swimming and floating in the calm stretches. Highlights of the day will include Klamath River Canyon and rapids, lots of splashy riffles and several class II and III rapids. We’ll end the day around 2:30 once we’ve transported you back to your car at the ROE office.
