Washington whitewater, Sol Duc River - South Fork

Clallam county, FR 2920 Bridge to FR 2918 Bridge section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.

 

CLASS IV+     3.2 miles
  Whitewater rafting and kayaking in this state is often more difficult than elsewhere, so you'd better keep in mind that rivers here are less forgiving. The scenic beauty of Washington and the playfulness of the water will make you feel great. Great exercise and spending some quality time in nature will have you coming back for more. You can pitch a tent or park your RV at a nearby campground. This is a bit of a short stretch so you'd better
    be prepared to walk your kayak back to put-in a few times. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of good rivers. This stretch of Sol Duc River - South
Fork is 3.2 miles long and is rated by American Whitewater as a class IV+ section. There are nice comfortable hotels here, but do book a room before you come because it is a very popular destination. The put-in location is a short drive from Port Angeles, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. This river system is full of great paddling stretches, the FR 2920 Bridge to FR 2918 Bridge stretch is just one of them.

Briefly about the general area:
Hiking along the Aurora Trail is magnificent fun; there are plenty of folks from Port Angeles here. If you want a magnificent time in the great outdoors just come on up to the Olympic Mountains.
