Tumbling from the spectacular Yosemite Valley, the Merced River beckons the outdoor lover each spring, while its continuous whitewater challenges even the veteran rafters in California white water rafting. Let nature refresh your soul with an explosion of redbud and poppies that color the rugged canyon. It's no wonder Congress extended the Merced's Wild & Scenic River protection to include the entire California white water rafting run in 1990. Our starting point for California white water rafting is just minutes from the entrance to Yosemite National Park. The Merced is an excellent choice for river rafting in California, especially for those who would like to combine their California white water rafting adventure with a visit to the park. At peak snow melt, the Merced runs high and fast, making the California white water rafting trip a class IV run. Later in the season when the river drops a bit, it become a class III California white water rafting run, but still ideal for river rafting in California. Wetsuits may be required.
