In the Trails.com Whitewater Paddling section you will find whitewater runs and paddling routes for canoeing, kayaking, and rafting on fast-flowing rivers and steep creeks throughout North America. We have everything from easy one-day trips to extreme adventures on all kinds of waterways and rapids – something for whitewater paddlers of all abilities and experience levels. Each of the river running trips is a complete chapter from a paddling guidebook and includes a detailed route map, driving directions to the put-in, and a clear description of the run, all produced by well-known outdoor guidebook publishers. Every whitewater trip is also linked to USGS topographic maps from the trip overview page, and many offer a host of additional features like photos, class ratings, river gauge locations, minimum and maximum water flows, and interesting information on the geology and natural history of the region.
