Itinerary BARTON PARK TO CARVER PARK
By far the most popular section to run because it’s the closest to Portland. Put in at Barton can be insanely crowded and can attract some unsavory characters on occasion but if you arrive early and plan your float on a weekday you’ll enjoy an easy family-friendly trip that will get the kids excited with a few splashy rapids but nothing more than a class I. Depending on flow rates this run is about 4 hours and requires you to drive two cars or hire a shuttle service. Under our “resources” link on the left, you can find a few outfits that we recommend using as a shuttle.
