Explore the Upper Deschutes River on Tumalo Creek Kayak’s special Fall Foliage Deschutes River Tour! Enjoy this pristine and tranquil section of the river during the peaceful autumn season. Observe the changing colors, listen for bird songs and look for signs of beaver.
Similar to our half-day tour on the Upper Deschutes River we’ll paddle upstream towards Benham falls exploring the wetland marshes, aspen groves, and pine forests. On this serene section of river, paddlers will see interesting lava flow formations that surged down from Paulina Peak when this volcano erupted creating the Newberry Crater National Monument. The trip ends with a relaxing paddle back to the put-in.
