Report

Account On the first few miles of this run the river passes through ranch land. Ranch on the John Day River. At Basalt Rapids you can take the line down the middle or sneak the main rapid by aiming for the narrow chute between the boulder and the left bank. Below Basalt Rapids more mid-channel boulders create fun hydraulics at higher flows.
