People & Place

Smith River Retreat

The location for this retreat is a beautiful 175 acre ranch located on the sweeping bend of the Wild & Scenic Smith River. The river is world class, crystalline and refreshing in the summertime heat. The Smith river is one of the most picturesque rivers in the country, aquamarine color with granite rock side canyons follow by dense redwood and pine forests. During our retreat we will have the option to float the river in a raft or inflatable kayak. It is an incredibly scenic, easy float that is perfect for everyone! The 1/2 day river trip will show paddlers the high-walled gorge of the Middle Fork Smith, the transition to the redwood forest and half-mile side hike to Stout Grove, the world’s most scenic redwood grove.
