The Narrows

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Hummock-like formations at The Narrows, Clackamas River (bobcat)


The Narrows is a constriction on the Clackamas River where the flow funnels through a basalt defile. For many years a large log straddled the chasm and adventurous souls could cross from the north bank. The log has now disappeared or, rather, was removed at the direction of a seasonal Forest Service employee.

This is a popular swimming hole and picnic spot in the summer.
