Float lazily down the Yuba River for about five hours and the enjoy the afternoon with a beach party. I have done this float since my teens and it is a relaxing an enjoying float with just enough change in the river to keep you from being bored. Bring lots of sunscreen, liquids for the float and ice chest for your potluck items for an after the float beach party. Last year this was one of the funnest events of the summer. I can be reached at [masked] for question regarding this trip.

This is a rafting and tubing trip down the Yuba River in Yuba County. We will hike to the river the first part via the dredger ponds. Distance 750 feet. From here we will float our way down to the beach. We will need drivers to transport us to the trailhead from the trail end/beach. Volunteers for this can help by being a part of the beach party at the end too. So anyone who doesn't feel comfortable floating but would like to beach for the day and help us transport please sign up and let me know you are willing to help in this way. If enough people are willing this would cut down on driver expenses and make this a greener hike/float.
I plan on leaving the park and ride about 8:30am then travel to Shad Pad in Marysville. Parking cars there and traveling up to the launch point in Hallwood. Which should take another half an hour. Launching around 10:30am. We should reach the Shad Pad at 2:30pm. We will have a beach party there for those who would like to stay and play. So, you should bring something you can store in the car for the party afterwards. Please list your potluck item in your rsvp. Bring treats for the float. Water for Hydration and sunscreen.
Riders pay your driver $10.00 for this trip.
You will need more than just floaties to do this trip an innertube raft or something large enough to support you for five hours on the water. Wear water shoes if you have them or tennis shoes for portages if there are any.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
