Calapooia River: 22 Miles above Holley to Bridge 13 Miles above Holley Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This uppermost section of the Calapooia contains the toughest and most technical whitewater the river has to offer. Though the run is class 3 overall, the three most difficult rapids would be very difficult to portage, so come prepared to run at least one class 4 rapid.

The road closely follows the river the whole way, making scouting possible on the drive up. The gradient numbers are deceptive: Though the average is 65 fpm, the section containing the short gorge is about 120 fpm for a mile. Always scout the boulder garden in the gorge before committing to it, preferably from the road because wood is almost always present in some of the chutes. Character: wooded, remote."
