Fall Foliage Tour
Tumalo Creek invites you to explore the Upper Deschutes River on their 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. Tour takes place every Tuesday and Friday in September from 10-2pm.
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.
Note: We disable online booking 24 hours before departure to allow time for scheduling, but there is almost always more room. Please call the shop to make your reservation: 541-317-9407. Periodically we need to reschedule due to low enrollment.
