Distinguished as one of only 20 National Water Trails in the U.S., the The Willamette River Water Trail is an assemblage of properties that provide access and campsites for paddlers along 187 miles of the mainstem Willamette River, as well as several miles of the Coast Fork Willamette, Middle Fork Willamette, and McKenzie River. The trail has two key guides/maps that enable people to identify access points, campsites, track river features, and offer a bit of history and information on what can be found as you travel the river.
