Description

The Wild & Scenic Deschutes River features over 100 miles of commercially-run intermediate whitewater. Groundwater percolating from volcanic rock aquifers keeps the Deschutes flowing at boatable levels year-round.

High desert scenery dominates the banks of the Deschutes River, featuring dark lava deposits interspersed with conglomerated volcanic ash. The second longest river in the state of Oregon, the Deschutes features dozens of miles of exciting beginner-intermediate level whitewater divided by one unrunable rock jumble known as Sherars Falls.

Trips on the Deschutes range from ½ day to three days in length. This section of the Deschutes is close to Maupin, OR, is about 1 ½ hours from Portland and 2 hours from Bend, OR.
