Table Rock Fork to Turner Bridge on the Mollala River

This first mile of this run offers a good class 2 warm up. There are great opportunities for good eddy hopping and some fun play.

Mile 1(Horse Creek Canyon Rapid): After a good warm up you will pass the confluence with Horse creek, shortly after the river will narrow into a small gorge. This is the first class 3+ drop; scout this drop for wood before you enter the gorge. Below the drop is a large pool that allows time for the scenery.

Mile 2: The river will make a few sharp bends. Scout around these bends because they often contain wood.

For the rest of the run expect some fun class 2 boulder gardens with a few good play waves.
