Trip information:  Experience the beautiful fall colors on our annual N. Santiam trip.  The float will be from Packsaddle to North Santiam Park.  Sept. 19 ought to be High Indian Summer and a great time for a day run on the North Santiam.  We will put in at Packsaddle, run for a couple of hours, have lunch and then finish up and take out at N. Santiam State Park, which is about three leisurely, scenic miles downstream from Fisherman's Bend, and a total of just over 12 miles.  There are plenty of riffles and play spots, and only about three rapids of note.  At low water this run can be bony.  Spencer's Hole and Carnivore are the two liveliest rapids, and one needs to know where to go over the dam at Mill City to avoid the rocks.  (The dam should be approached immediately to the left of a small fountain-like plume that is visible from upstream.)
