624 SE 7th Avenue, Portland, OR
Next Adventure hosts a winter event called Get Out And Paddle (G.O.A.P). It's free of charge and welcome to all. The paddles are class II (2nd Saturday) class III (3rd Saturday), and class IV (4th saturday)
There are 3 Events per month from November to March! They have no idea where they are going until the friday before usually.
Here is where they went last year for the Class II
Barton to Carver, Bobs to Memaloose, Dodge to Oxbow, Lower White Samon, and Molalla Glen Avon to Feyrer Park
You just have to show up at 8am at The Paddle Sports Center (704 SE Washington St.) and they'll tell us, or meet at the take-out once it's announced.
• These trips ARE NOT guided
• You need to have the proper gear and skill level
• And yes of course can rent what you need there.
• The first 10 people get a free ride in the shuttle van, the rest have to pack their own!
Expect water temperatures below 40 degrees F.
This is a great way to learn local white water routes with the safety net of you're not alone, and someone knows where they're going!
