River Description

This stream flows through the town of Clackamas in an out of place mini gorge.  The put in is on a highway and the from the take out you can see stoplights, an odd setting for an Oregon creeking run.  

The run is mainly class II-III, but care must be taken to avoid fences crossing the stream, logs in a committing gorge, and a runnable 18 foot waterfall.

If you are intrigued by adventure and the promise of a new waterfall to run, check this run out when the beaver creek gauge is around 8 ft.

Oregon Waterway Access Bill Set to Become Law

Priscilla Macy

This week, Oregon House Bill 2835 re-passed the Oregon House on a 52-7 vote. Having earlier cleared the Senate, the bill now awaits a signature from the Governor to be signed into law. For decades, opportunities to protect and improve the ability of the public to access and legally use waterways for recreation have seen minimal progress, while efforts to severely limit access have been a consistent threat. Oregon House Bill 2835 is a pivotal piece of legislation in Oregon, and the first proactive waterway access bill in recent history to have made it through the state legislature.
