Mill City To Mehama
This "lower" run has less whitewater, more houses, and more people (during the summer) than the run upstream (Packsaddle Park to Mill City). The river takes on a more urban feel here and the lack of any "major" rapids makes this a common training ground for up and coming Kayakers, open canoists, and families looking for a summer float.
Suggested river levels for paddling this section of the North Santiam River are between a bare minimum of 800cfs and a high of 3,000cfs.
