Good equipment and great guides. It was a fun ride, not to scary but exciting enough to get your blood pumping. My husband enjoyed it as well but he would have preferred more rapids. The walk in the Redwoods was good and Ryan had lots...More

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.

Alex was affable, patient, accommodating and informed. We very much enjoyed the trek through the enchanted forest of magnificent Redwoods, with portions fog enshrouded. It was a great ride on a smooth moss covered trail (mostly) and we would highly recommend.

Our guide was wonderful. He knew so much about the area and the redwoods. He allowed us to set our pace but also get the most out of our ride. We will definitely do this again with Redwood Rides.

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.

Yes, we can definitely accommodate travelers with limited mobility. Our guides will assist you in getting in and out of your boat, and either limit or cut out the short hike during your trip.
