The Little Klickitat River is a tiny, brushy stream that winds across a broad valley past open pastures. The river quickly starts to descend, however, dropping through small Class II to III stairstep rapids as it carves its way into a ponderosa-lined basalt canyon. The first significant drop- a broken 4-foot ledge that hides around a gradual right bend- contains a killer sieve. Most paddlers portage this rapid, though at higher flows many go for the sneak route on river right. Don't blow the move!
