Little North Santiam - Gold Creek to Three Pools (Opal Creek Run)

Oregon-US  

Description

This run is an absolute classic for Class IV+ kayakers with steep creek skills.  Drops are pristine, beautiful and exciting.  If its your first tiem down, keep the hairy side up and try to look up and enjoy it.

Rapids with names like "Big Ugly, Big Fluffly" and Thor's Hammer" await you downstream.
