We floated in late August and were fully aware there would be low water conditions. Other than getting “hung up” a few times it was pleasant and safe. The guide was enjoyable and we had a pleasant day.

The bicycle ride through the Redwoods is a unique close up experience. I wouldn’t miss it. Of course, the kayak run on the Smith river is wonderful too.
