Calapooia River: McKercher Park to Brownsville is a 7 mile trail located near Brownsville, OR. The trail is primarily used for whitewater kayaking.
Linn county, McKercher Park to Brownsville. This section of Calapooia River is 7 miles long and is class I. However it was quite challenging in an open canoe with lots of rapids and turns. Best paddled in Late spring as there are no dams on it, it gets quite low in summer. It was 1200 CFS when we went. Unlike the lower sections, the water is quite clean. Brownsville is a fine touristy town to have lunch afterward.
