The Willamette River Water Trail

Flowing through forests, meadows, parks, farms, and cities large and small, the Willamette River is the defining natural feature of the Willamette Valley. The river descends from it's headwaters in the Cascade and Coast ranges, with their wide, blue-green vistas, to the city of Eugene. It then winds it's way 187 miles northward through the valley to Portland. Towering black cottonwood trees frame the main stem's riffles and pools throughout it's length.
