Middle Santiam River: NF 2041 to Green Peter Lake Professional Review and Guide
"Because of the length of this trip, the long shuttle, and the paddle across the lake at the end, most boaters will opt to take 2 days to complete the trip. The first half of this run is the most pristine river run in Oregon’s Cascades and the only Cascade wilderness run. The trip begins in a broad basin with scenic views of neighboring mountain peaks. Initially, rapids are class 1, providing a chance to take in the scenery. The tempo picks up at mile 3 with class 2 and 3 drops appearing frequently. About two-thirds of the way through the trip, a class 4 rapid is likely to have its main channel blocked with logs. After the class 4 rapid, the water is more consistently class 3. Character: forested; wilderness."
