  • The Lehigh River is a free flowing wild river with changing water and weather conditions. You should be healthy and capable of getting back in the raft should you fall out.  If you have excessive weight for your height or have a disability which would hinder or prevent you from getting back into the raft, we do not recommend this trip for you. Guests that are participating in our Dam Release Whitewater Rafting Adventure must be comfortable walking for 20 minutes.
