This is a beautiful and peaceful excursion. Very easy with the kayaks and during the week, there was nobody out there. It took us about 4 hours, but we did stop and got out to stretch and eat some snacks.
had a wonderful time floating down to this about 6 hours from Independence to Salem had a great time
