WILLAMETTE KAYAKING TOUR DETAILS

Kayak the 1840’s route of discovery by John McLoughlin, the founder of Oregon City, and often referred to as the “Father of Oregon”.  Explore the Willamette River transportation route used by early pioneers from Willamette Falls to Milwaukie.  This 8-mile adventure takes you from the confluence of the Clackamas and Willamette rivers in Oregon City downstream past Goat Island, where you can find a heron rookery on the north side.  Continuing down river you will pass the large green spaces of Mary S. Young and Cedar Island Park, continuing towards Hogg Island, a perfect spot for lunch or a snack.  Passing more greenspaces, Foothills and RiverVilla Park, past the manicured riverfront estates of Dunthrope, and ending just past Elk Rock Island.  From here you are in walking distance to the Trimet Lightrail system and steps from downtown Milwaukie.
