American River Outdoor Activities

If you want the heart pounding exhilaration of whitewater rafting, the hold your breath excitement of zip lining, or prefer the mental stimulation and thrill of a challenge ropes course, we’ve got what you’re looking for. No matter your skill level or group size, you’ll find a wide range of activities to suite your adventure needs.

The guides with Mother Lode are super amazing…super knowledgeable and definitely experts at what they do. You could tell they really enjoyed what they did. I would, without a doubt, recommend the company to anyone looking to spend a day or two on the American River.”
