American River, Middle Fork - Tunnel Run (Ralston Powerhouse to Greenwood)

Last Chance Rapid

Rapid Details

Name Last Chance Rapid
Class III

This rapid is right above the Tunnel Chute.  A simple wave hole with minimal flatwater below here doesn't leave a lot for boaters to eddy out left or right just before Tunnel.


Best choice for someone never running this before would be to eddy out above Last Chance and scout Last Chance and Tunnel all at the same time.
