This is two laps on the famous Lickety section that runs through the town of Kernville. Perfect for those adventurous appetites that will not be satisfied by one trip down the river. After your first run, we head back upriver once more to put your newly honed river skills to the test. Now that you are a “veteran,” you and your guide may try to navigate some of the more adventurous lines through the bigger rapids. Wetsuits are not required but are highly recommended prior to late May or early June when the water is colder.
