Day 1: Arrive at Three Rivers Hideaway Camp
We kick off the weekend by arriving at our campground anytime after 2 pm and checking in with your trip leader. Located on the Kaweah River, just three miles from Sequoia National Park, enjoy beach access perfect for fishing and swimming. You’ll be immersed in the outdoors while still having simple comforts like a hot shower and flushing toilets. Set up camp and then relax while listening to the sound of the flowing river.
This evening, we’ll sit around the campfire with your drink of choice. If you’d like, bring some games for us to play as a group.
Day 2: Whitewater Rafting on Kaweah River
This morning, Adventure People take to the river for an adrenaline-pumping full-day whitewater rafting adventure! We’ll meet our guides at approximately 8:00 am and have a safety talk before setting out on a full-day river trip of Class III-IV+ rapids. We’ll be rafting 9 miles of the Kaweah River, which will take approximately 4-6 hours. Lunch will be included on this day somewhere along the river.
This evening, we’ll share stories of the day over a community dinner at our campground.
Included Meals: Lunch
Day 3: Hiking in Sequoia National Park
After breakfast, we’ll drive into Sequoia National Park for a full day of hiking. We’ll visit the General Sherman Tree (0.8 miles out & back, easy) and Moro Rock (0.4 miles out & back, moderate) and then we’ll visit Tokopah Falls, a waterfall in a valley shaped by a glacier (4 miles out & back, moderate). If there’s time, we’ll also visit Tharp’s Log (2.1 miles, out & back, moderate).
Note: There is a $35 vehicle pass required to enter the park (not included). You can purchase this pass in advance at www.yourpassnow.com.
Day 4: Depart Three Rivers Hideaway Camp
Today we’ll check out of our campground and make a short drive to explore Crystal Cave, located between the Ash Mountain entrance of the park and the Giant Forest Museum in Sequoia National Park. Crystal Cave is a treasure of ornate marble polished by subterranean streams and decorated with curtains of icicle-like stalactites and mounds of stalagmites. At the end of the day, we’ll say goodbye to our new friends until the next adventure.
