Class I-II Siuslaw River, OR

Lake Creek to Mapletown

This is a fun class II/III run that is also popular with fishermen. At low flows it is mostly class II but at high flows it pumps up to class III with a few great playspots. Many of the rapids are formed by bedrock shelves. The river has fairly consistent gradient with rapids distributed along the length of this run from the confluence with Lake Creek down to a point just above Mapleton where the river flattens out and tidal influence is apparent.
