Nooksack River Rafting
The Nooksack River is a fun, beautiful clear river filled with everything for the nature lover.
This river is approximately 25 mi (40 km) long, in northwestern Washington in the United States. It drains an area of the Cascade Range along the Canadian border, flowing through a fertile agricultural coastal area before emptying into the Pacific Ocean at the south end of the Strait of Georgia. The river is approximately 75 mi (120 km) long to its farther headwaters on the North Fork. It rises in two separate forks in northwest Washington. The South Fork (50 mi/80 km) rises in southern Whatcom County, south of South Twin in the southern Mount Baker Wilderness Area. It flows briefly south, then northwest, past Acme. The North Fork rises in central Whatcom County north of Mount Shuksan in the western North Cascades National Park. It flows generally west, passing north of Mount Baker.
The Nooksack River, just south of the Canadian border, is another great late season run. Begin your adventure in a primeval canyon dripping with moss. This wild ride requires precise maneuvering through the tight and technical rapids in it's narrow canyon section. Rapids the likes of Fir Drop, Turtle Rock, Landslide, and Gallop Drop give you the sense of this steep canyon and it's fast pace.
