This tour starts at Harrisburg Park, look for the White gazebo. Paddling from here to Irish Bend is about 10 river miles. This section of the Willamette River is becoming more broad and remote as we leave the urban area of Eugene. It’s a great place for beginners to get the feel of paddling on moving water. The birding along this section is fantastic with the opportunity to se a number of different raptors.
