This part of the Deschutes is home to the rapid "Big Eddy" so this is a very busy part of the river with many guide rafts constantly running through. My only problem is I chose to do the run after some flooding rains and boy was Big Eddy BIG, I don't recommend running it with high waters. There are many rafting tours in Bend that run this as a 1-2 hour Deschutes River trip with Big Eddy as the Grand Finale!
