Places to Whitewater Raft and Kayak

Whitewater is formed when a river's water moves swiftly over rocks. This movement creates waves that kayakers and rafters like to ride over. Different rivers have better waves at different flow rates and different seasons of the year. Rafting and kayaking can be a dangerous sport if one is not trained. This section of Backcountry Secrets shows our list of place to whitewater raft and kayak. If you know of other rivers to run, please share them.
