Trip sign-up begins: Tuesday, September 2

Pre-Trip Meeting: Tuesday, September 16 at 5:00pm


Stay in yurts near the trendy town of Bend and paddle down the Deschutes River on stand-up paddleboards.  The river meanders through the region, and paddlers will encounter nominal class 1 riffles (class 1 means there is current, but no significant rapids).  You definitely want to have some upper body strength to do this trip but don’t need to be an experienced “stand-up paddler”.  It’s a plus if you’ve been canoeing or kayaking before.  This side of the Oregon Cascades usually has great, sunny, fall weather, and the mountain scenery you’ll see while paddling is spectacular.
