Flatwater trips don’t get any closer to downtown Portland than the river that cuts through the heart of it. The paddle around Ross Island is an urban favorite for a fistful of reasons, not the least of which are convenience, stunning city views, and a surprisingly vast array of wildlife. Th Ross Island paddle is an urban favorite among canoers and kayakers. A contingent of stand-up paddlers favor the trek as well. Sitting smack dab in the middle of the Willamette River where the waterway bends around downtown, Ross Island, like many of Portland’s natural areas, is teeming with wildlife.
