A roadside run in the Little North Santiam drainage. Most of the run is fun, with a few serious rapids thrown in that most will portage. Scout your eddies above the 3 gnarly ones on your way up, as they are small with fast water leading into them. The rest of the creek is full of small horizon lines, with the occasional log to watch out for.
