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.


If you register for this event and find that you need to cancel please notify the trip organizer and cancel through the website. Members on the waitlist cannot be added to the roster or notified they are now eligible to attend unless your registration is removed from the trip. To cancel please go to the event registration page on the website and click on "Already Registered". A page will open that will allow you to cancel.

Narrative: Please join me on a trip down the Willamette. We will be launching from Cedar Oak paddling with the outgoing tide. and explore the river as we travel downstream. Take in the beauty of the river as we paddle to Rogers State Park. We will take a short break there and learn a bit about the history of Lake Oswego. Maybe will see an eagle, or perhaps a peregrine falcon nesting in the cliffs across from Elk Rock, where we can have our lunch. After our lunch we will head back up stream, maybe even getting a little push from an incoming tide.
