Class IV Premium
Every Class IV rapid on the Lower Kern
for the thrill seekers
Class IV all-day-long on Lower Kern
The Class IV Premium is one of the best summer whitewater trips on the West Coast. It is a continuous down river trip through a beautiful canyon with only limited road access. And… it packs every single Class IV rapid on the Lower Kern into a single day. The day is split by a short ‘portage’ where we walk the rafts around a spectacular but unrunnable cataract. The portage and the beauty and power of the location add to the overall quality, excitement, and authenticity of this run. If you only have one day, this is the trip to do.
