more fun in little boats. theres even surf spots duckies can get into.... Less rafting, more better. lol.
10-12' rafts will have fun, but in duckies it will be a blast. low stress fun...
I dont know if you're familiar with the RC, but if not, Just make sure and scout Big Rocks rapid (look for the giant 'baby huey' boulder below the low bridge. its a fairly easy L to R slot move, above a huge midstream rock. but you dont want to drift into it unawares. The River left side is the toilet bowl,right where you would scout from the road. dont want to go in there as its way undercut, ad fyi the downstream side of the slot is undercut badly.
so the slot is really no problem unless once again, you drift into it sideways (seen it once or 300 times with guided ducky trips at low water. we would set safety on both sides of the slot, because it's the one legitimately dangerous spot on the RC.)
oh ,and and After five & sleeping beauty surf spots are just downstream from big rocks.
and x2 on Sugar's. its the bomb! Blue Heron microbrewery is also in Rinconada, 2 minutes south of the county line take out.
