This tour starts at the boat ramp in ABP.  Paddling from here to Whitely is about 7 river miles.  This section of the Willamette River is rather swift in places and there is a fun class 2 rapid at Marist.  This can be portaged, if needed.  It travels through the urban area of Eugene, including under Beltline Highway.  It’s a great place for paddlers to enjoy some sassy waves and see a section of town from the waterway.  The birding along this section is fantastic with the opportunity to see a number of different species.
