Half Day of McKenzie River Rafting!
Choose Your Adventure
Finn Rock to Helfrich ~10 Miles, 3 hours on the river
For families (minimum age, 4 years) and groups, a good introduction to rafting the McKenzie River. The first three miles give us time to get used to the river and to team paddling. Then come great wave-train rapids, lots of wet, whitewater excitement. Our snack and potty break follows. Several rapids later is Brown’s Hole that drops into a pool of effervescent turquoise. Meandering through a few more rapids brings us to the most famous rapid on the McKenzie River: Marten’s; lots of rocks, waves, hydraulics. Maneuvering skills honed over the past nine miles will get us through. It is truly the exclamation point of the trip!
Paradise to Bruckart ~10 Miles, 2.5 hours on the river
For rafters who want more continuous whitewater, the rapids begin within yards of our starting point and go on and on for 8 1/2 miles. McKenzie Bridge Campground is our snack and potty stop. One of the trip’s biggest rapids follows immediately. We enter the first really calm pool after passing under the distinctive covered bridge at Rainbow.
