River Description


Gauge:  This run doesn't get paddled very often, so the gauge range is of known runnable flows (not many data points).  It is possible this run could be done a little higher, or a little lower.

 

This is a great class IV-IV+ steep creek. Access is an issue as it crosses private property before continuing on Weyerhaeuser land. Several 'No Trespassing' signs are posted at the first gate. The run somewhat correlates to a medium level for the more well known 3 Bears run on the main Molalla. The put-in requires a ~4 mile hike in over a gravel road. A good take out option exists on the main Molalla approximately 2 miles downstream from the confluence at a day use site called The Cedars owned by ODFW on river right.

Oregon Waterway Access Bill Set to Become Law

6/10/2019
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.
