This will be a shuttle trip from Hebb County Park to Willamette Park in West Linn. We will put in and ride the river down to the Narrows where we can play and explore without the work of paddling up the river. This is the lazy way to spend some time in the Narrows. In the narrows you will have the opportunity to practice crossing eddy lines and play in moving water. 

We will be meeting at Hebb Park and dropping our gear off and then driving to Willamette Park to drop off our vehicles. Helmet is recommended.
