This Class IV run covers 16 miles of the Middle Fork of the American River and is offered as our Ruck-A-Chuck California Rafting Trip.

After an early morning start, we kick things off with a Class III rapid just yards from the put-in. After a few more rapids to get us used to rafting, we hit some more challenging and no less visually impressive rapids including Tunnel Chute. After a number of larger rapids we get a bit of a break as we float down intermittent class II rapids for the next 9 miles, rest, have lunch, and get to know each other better.

After a time of relaxation, we’ll jump back in to some more Class IV rapids in quick succession be before calling it a day and heading back home.

Class II Run

There is a Class II run on the lower section of the Middle Fork of the American River. But due to the extended travel time and equipment logistics we do not typically offer rafting trips on this scenic section.

Statement of Belief

We believe we should, "Love the Lord (our) God with all (our) heart, and with all (our) soul, and with all (our) mind," and "The entire law is summed up in one command: Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37, Galatians 5:14. We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal and only Son of God. That He died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice, paying the penalty for all our sins, and then rose from the grave. It is through faith alone in Jesus Christ that we have received the free gift of salvation and eternal life. We are saved by grace, not works, “that no one should boast”. We believe the Bible is accurate, reliable, and the Word of God. (Luke 5:20-24; John 1:1-18; John 3:15-21; John 14:1-15; Ephesians 2; 1 John)

Who we are

Rock-N-Water is a group of Christians who want to impact young people with the joy of God's Living Word, so they might come to know Jesus and pass on God's love with excitement. We focus our program on biblical principals, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character.
