The Green Truss section of the White Salmon is a Northwest classic. This run almost always has enough water to run, making this stretch a world-class destination for expert paddlers in the late spring and early summer. The spectacular basalt gorges on this section are unforgettable, but you probably will not notice the scenery your first time down. The run starts with a marginal climb down into the canyon, which gets worse every year as erosion takes its toll on the cliff face. (If it is snowing, you will have to rappel to reach the river.) This run is pool drop with a capital D, and the action begins immediately below the put-in with a fun series of class 3 and 4 drops that gradually get bigger as you head downstream. Character: forested canyon.
