TRUCKEE RIVER: BOCA RUN

This 7-mile run of the Truckee River is packed with excitement. We will enter a volcanic canyon decorated with craggy eroded cliffs formed by ancient lava flows from Mt. Pluto. At the start there are several fun Class 2-2+ rapids for us to maneuver through, Wake Up, Airplane Turn and Railroad Rapid. As we approach the last miles of the Truckee River, we will enter the Floriston Gorge which consists of several Class 2+ rapids, Kabob Rapid which is followed by a couple of Class 2 drops that lead into the Class 3+ “Jaws”. Just around the corner the river drops into a long boulder garden called Pinball Machine. This is followed by the Class 3+ Bronco Ledge and Lower Bronco. We will conclude this journey at the take-out in Floriston where we’ll serve you refreshments.

TRUCKEE RIVER: VERDI RUN

This trip is an alternative run to our regular "Truckee River" adventure when flows on that section are high.

For this 8-mile section of Truckee River we will begin at Crystal Peak Park near Verdi, NV. Most of this river rafting trip has easy Class 2 rapids, with a couple of bigger rapids like “Gorilla Falls” (aka River Bend) and “Powerhouse”. This trip flows thru a pastoral setting of meadows with screens of cottonwood and willows. We will conclude this trip on the river at Mayberry Park on the western outskirts of Reno where we’ll serve you refreshments.

This Class 2+ Verdi Run on the Truckee River is ONLY offered when the water levels on our regular Truckee River Run are too high due to snow melt. During a normal year, river flows on this run are too low most of the time. We cannot always guarantee which of the 2 rafting trips will be offered on any given day, as it will be dependent on the water levels, which can change unexpectedly. So, on occasions, Truckee River rafting trips booked on the Boca Run will be switched to the Verdi Run.

MEETING LOCATION:

TBD

4 hr  /  7 miles

$120 Per Person / 2 Person Minimum

Class 2-3+, Refreshments included

Ages 7+.
