This run offers a variety of rapids winding through a deep canyon with pretty views of a moss-laden forest. Being near the upper reaches of the Molalla, this run is runnable only after several days of heavy rain. Immediately below the put-in, where Copper Creek enters the main Molalla, is a small gorge that begins with a sharp, narrow class 3+ drop. This drop can be skipped by starting just downstream. The drops in this beautiful gorge can be scouted from the road or the river. A long boulder garden is situated just before the Copper Creek Bridge, another possible put-in. Character: canyon; forested.
