River Description

This is a beautiful class II-III run running down the flanks of Mt Hood.  The largest rapid (III-III+) is Taffy Puller and is run down the middle.  Wood is usually present, but does not often require portaging.

The run can be done with lots of water, but is best at the recommended flows as a scenic trip, providing a more engaging alternative to walking the Salmon River trail.


Boaters looking for a full day will often continue down the Sandy River to the Sleepy Hollow Rd bridge.
