The Upper Yakima launch location is about 25 minutes from Suncadia the take-out is another 15 minute drive down river. Most groups, drive their own car to the meeting location. However, special shuttles can be arranged on most days, as long as our extra shuttle bus has not been reserved for another group.

Professionally guided trips take the hassle out of your day. Your guide meets you at the river in the morning to help your group get fitted for flotation devices and ready for the day. Then, they will help you maneuver down the river, either hitting as many small rapids as possible or avoiding all the splashes for a more relaxing day. Your guide will know all the favorite stopping spots and may even help your group play river games. After stopping at a popular swimming spot for lunch your guide will help your boat safely get to the take out and exit the river.

If you want to do a self guided trip you can do that as well. A self guided trip includes the equipment rental, PFD's, Paddles, and a shuttle for the drivers. A Rill Adventures Employee will brief your group on how to paddle and river safety before you depart. At the end of the day they will help you exit the river at the take-out. You will be on your own on the water.
