There's easy access for both the put in and take out. Both require a very short hike to or from the river. There are great views of Mt. Si along this stretch of river! There are no bathrooms, just an FYI.

  Fun Facts

Great views of Mount Si, North Bend has the NB Bar and Grill with some good grub and beer. If you are in the mood for a milkshake, there's a Dairy Freeze across the street from the bar and grill. If you are a Twin Peaks fan, Twede's Café was part of the show and stil is open for business....I've always wanted to stop in and get some pie :)

   Run Description [Season: ]

By Megspk 11/4/2014
A nice class two with some great spots for working on basic skills with minimal consequence.
A great section of river with class 1 or 2 options. Like most rivers you can make it more challenging by making your way around rocks and trying to catch rock eddies. There's a great wave train near the end of the run and there's also a great spot right before the take out where you can work on ferries and sturns. It's a short flat water paddle to the take out from here. I'd recommend at least 1000 cfs, I was out there at about 900 and it was very shallow in spots, but still able to be paddled.
