Sandy River: Marmot Diversion Dam to Revenue Bridge Professional Review and Guide
"This run is also known as the Sandy Gorge. For almost the entire length of the gorge, the Sandy cuts a winding and often quite narrow canyon through a formation of compacted volcanic ash conglomerate. The walls of the canyon are deeply sculpted and sometimes overhanging, and they rise 150 feet. A multitude of small waterfalls cascading down from both sides, plus lush vegetation consisting of both deciduous and evergreen trees and mosses and maidenhair ferns that cling to the ceilings of caves and overhangs, make this stretch of river among the most picturesque in Oregon. Most people will choose to put in immediately below ’64 Logjam Rapid. For those who choose to put in farther upstream, scout and/or portage the remnants of this logjam on the right."
