Registration is closed

This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification.  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group. Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.  If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip.

Narrative: We will meet at Boones Ferry Marina and Boat Ramp near Wilsonville at 9:00am and set up a car shuttle for our take out at Willamette Park in West Linn. There are restrooms at both Boones Ferry and Willamette Park. Parking at Boones Ferry Boat Ramp is $5.00 and takes credit cards. We will follow the river downstream enjoying the current assist of the river, stopping at Hebb Park for lunch. We can explore the narrows, but the flow is moderate at 56 feet which will not be enough to challenge us too much. Take out will be at Willamette Park. Bring water and lunch.
