Metolius River

Metolius River Professional Review and Guide

"The Metolius River is the most magical of all rivers in the state of Oregon. Originating from two clusters of substantial underground springs at the base of Black Butte, the river appears to rise fully formed from underground.

Though the headwaters are impressive, the rest of the river is even more spectacular. The waters of the Metolius are clean and clear, and the river and idyllic woods on each side create a stunning backdrop. A National Wild and Scenic River, the Metolius is best described as a scene from the Brad Pitt ?lm A River Runs Through It."
