Rafting on the Trinity River is always an adventure. Your adrenaline will be pumping as you navigate around boulders and through rushing rapids; then, in a blink of an eye you’ll be catching your breath, floating through steep canyons on calm and peaceful waters. With 40 miles of class 1 (easy) rafting and 26 miles of class 2-3 rafting (expect to get wet!), the Trinity River is a premiere whitewater river destination. Most people will want to go with a professional river guide and there some great companies in the area offering tailor-made trips lasting a few hours to several days. Along the way, keep a lookout for the deer, bear, turtles, ospreys and bald eagles that make their homes in this wilderness. If you’re an experienced rafter and have your own boat, there are several access points along the river and a local outfitter or the Trinity Chamber of Commerce will advise you on river conditions.
WHERE: Access points at Steel Bridge, Big Bar, Big Flat, Douglas City and Junction City.
