River Description

Roaring River is one of several exciting, adventurous tributaries to the Clackamas River. Reaching the put-in requires a 1.5 mile hike. The river is very remote with almost continuous rapids at most flows.

Check out the description and photos at Oregon Kayaking. You can check the website for more stories of exploring this drainage.

 

There is good flow information here.  For the stick gauge referred to there, Oregonkayaking.net suggests 2.2-2.5 feet for a first time trip, with anything over 3' being high.
