Husum Falls Rapid

About Husum Falls

Husum Falls is one of the highest commercially rafted waterfalls in the world and the highest commercially rafted waterfall in the US. It sports a 12-foot drop into a sticky hole. If you run it in the summertime, the chance of having an audience will be high. The line is relatively straightforward, but do be ready for someone to pop out, as the hit at the bottom can be violent.

As the flows get higher, running Husum Falls successfully becomes more of a coin flip. The typical line is to enter center and then work left to hit the drop with a slight left angle. Even with a good angle, hang on tight. This rapid has incredible access at all points of the year, and the portage is straightforward on the left bank.
