This is a high elevation Cascade Mountain River that has a small window of opportunity for boating. This run is water level dependent and requires a combination of heavy rain, snow melt and high freezing level temperatures, so date may be flexible.
Steep, continues rapids. Wood obstructions and log jams are a real possibility on this section of river. There will be two class IV roadside scouts on the drive up. Less then a third of the river and rapids can be seen from the road. Meet up is in Detroit (Hwy 22), 2 hours drive from PDX. The run is from Pamelia Creek Put-in to Blowout Rd take out. Approximately 10 miles. 8 boats max.
