The White Salmon may very well be the best bang for your buck in terms of whitewater and scenery. Not only does it have nearly continuous Class III and IV rapids, but it was also declared Wild and Scenic by Congress. It's just north of Hood River, Oregon at the base of Mount Adams. Most people start at the boat ramp at BZ Corner, but several outfitters have access to public lands upriver that allow for several upstream Class IV rapids and a fun portage that includes a 15 foot cliff jump into the river. Below BZ Corner are many fun rapids in an intimate canyon. The highlight of the trip is rafting over the 10 foot Husum Falls at the end. This is a unique experience that is worth the trip alone.
