Registration is closed

 This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification (except for level 1 trips when the paddler is not using a spray skirt....if the paddler is wearing a spray skirt on a level 1 paddle, the Wet Exit Certification is REQUIRED).  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group if you intend to wear a spray skirt.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.  If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip.

Activity Title: Cedaroak Boat Ramp to Willamette Falls RT, Level1
Date of Activity: 6/12/2021
Narrative: We will put in at the Cedaroak Boat Ramp and paddle up to the Willamette Falls. Along the way we may pop into the Clackamas River and take a look around. At the falls we will stay outside of the swift currents that come out of the base, but we should get close enough to enjoy the power of the water. This will be a leisurely pace. We will be going against the current on the way up. there is the possibility that it will be strong enough to reject us. In that case we will go as far as is comfortable. The pod will do some eddie hopping to ease the way. We will stop on the way for a snack or lunch. I would like to get a early start to avoid the boat traffic.
