The upper Middle Fork Santiam River lies within the Middle Santiam Wilderness. Since roads no longer lead directly to the river, paddlers must make a grueling 3-mile hike to reach the upper access. The upper Middle Fork Santiam is spectacularly scenic before dropping into private clearcuts. The section between Green Peter Dam and Foster Reservoir is a guaranteed run even in hot summer. The lower river is classic Class IV whitewater over a 2-mile run.
