The upper section of the Table Rock Fork of the Molalla River is a great intermediate run for up-and-coming creekers. Although most of the drops are small, the continuous nature of the rapids keeps boaters on their toes. The road is always close, which allows for easy scouting during the shuttle and an escape route if the rapids are too demanding. The first major rapid is about a mile below the put-in, immediately after a sharp left-hand turn. It is easily recognized by steep rock walls on either side of the river and boulders that block much of the river. At most water levels, the river drops through a tight, undercut slot on the right and into a hole. The slot can be portaged on the right. Immediately after the slot is a narrow drop that could contain wood. Character: continuous, roadside.
