Trip Highlights

Mile 0:The drive to put-in takes you along the river and allows you to scout some of the larger rapids. Horse Creek Road splits off of Upper Molalla Road and this is your marker for put-in. Continue driving and use one of the pull outs to park cars and walk down to the river.

Mile 4.8 The first of the 3-Bears is Papa Bear (III+) just below Turner Bridge. Bear creek comes in on the right just after this rapid. You can get a pretty good view of this rapid as you drive to put-in.

Mile 5.5 Next up is Mamma Bear (IV). The road goes right by this rapid so scout on the drive up to put-in. With a rock garden entry, to a large hole to punch. Once through that hole the river continues through a swirly tight canyon.

Momma Bear

Momma Bear (IV) from the road side scout.

Mile 7.3 The last challenge is Baby Bear (III+). Also right along the road, this short swirly rapid can eat your stern.

Mile 11.8 Goldilocks and Porridge Pot (III) are the last big rapids. At some flows Porridge Pot is a great play wave.
