New for SttS 2020 - River Rafting Option!
Gated Community


As Day 2 Monday at the American River Resort is a layover day, Sierra to the Sea riders have an opportunity to experience rafting on the American River instead of riding that day. The rafting tour will be at your expense, but is a great opportunity to experience wild California.

If you are interested, American River Resort requests that you reserve your river trip as early as possible as explained below. Full details from the American River Resort follow:

We recommend that your group book rafting in advance. This will ensure that we have enough guides and gear ready and available for everyone. If there are some last minute additions we can usually accommodate them.
We have rafting trips departing from the Resort daily on the South Fork American River. Please find the trip options and pricing below.
