After the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens the Toutle River was filled with enough volcanic silt that the river bed is still changing to this day. Come experience the incredible Class III and Class IV rapids near Castle Rock, WA in the shadow of Mt. St. Helens. When you are looking for early season rafting near Portland or Tacoma this is your river. Book a trip today or contact Wildwater River Guides with questions.
The Seattle river rafters know they can count on the Toutle to deliver big hits at the start of the rafting season. Early Class III+ rapids like "Stairsteps" and "Tempest in a Teapot" take you between basalt walls and enormous boulders, but can't compare to the Class IV Hollywood Gorge. With huge waves and bottomless holes the historic Toutle should be on your list when you are looking for rafting near Seattle, Tacoma or Portland.
