My 16-year-old daughter, her two friends, & I (60+ female) took this whitewater kayak trip with River & Trail. All of us had kayaked at least once, but only on flat water. Our guide, Jake, was great at talking us through the trip & giving us pointers. He led the way & we followed. It was SO much fun!! Don't hesitate if you have no experience, it's very doable, as long as you have even a smidgin of physical fitness.
I had done the rafting trip previously, when my daughters were 11 and 8, and we enjoyed that trip a lot. The kayakers travel ahead of the rafters along the same route. I'm not a hiker or a biker, but kayaking is a blast! I can't wait to try another trip.
