The Merced river tumbles and twists out of Yosemite Valley, gradually mellowing into a raftable whitewater river just 4 miles below the town of El Portal. Abundant whitewater confined by a narrow corridor make the Merced one of the best easy rafting trips in California. The meeting spot is only 1 hour and 30 minutes from Yosemite Valley. Morning and afternoon options.
