River Description


A neat intermediate run that is only accessible during hunting season.


The upper parts of the run have some neat class IV bedrock rapids in mini-canyons.  The middle part eases off in difficulty with some plucky class IIIs here and there.  Soggy Sneakers calls it "intimate", that is a good word for it.  Make sure to scout the take out from Mill Creek Park, downstream is a nasty crack drop that does not get run as far as AW is aware of.


Call Weyerhaeuser at this number for a recording letting you know what areas are open and when hunting season is.   888-741-5403

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.
