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. River conditions sourced from USGS 14181500, the North Santiam River At Niagara Remember only watercraft are permitted at Mill City to Mehama.
