Oregon whitewater, Jenny Creek

Jackson Siskiyou county, Ashland Oregon to Iron Gate Reservoir California section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS IV-V+     14 miles
You have got to be kidding. IV-V+???!!!!!! Has someone really run the falls? You make it sound like a like just any old run. It can only be run at the few times there is enough water and for a large part of the run, barb wire, willow thickets in the channel and recluses with shotguns are the main obstacles. Only the last few miles has whitewater of note and it is challenging. I ran this section in the mid eighties and claim along with my
    buddies Kent Erskine and Max Linn a first descent. Says rick landt

This section of Jenny Creek in Jackson / Siskiyou County is 14 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class IV-V+ section of whitewater.
The scenic beauty of Jackson / Siskiyou County and the playfulness of the water attract people from near and far. The starting point is not too far from Medford, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. Getting some good exercise and spending some quality time in nature  
will make you glad you came. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Oregon are harder than the national norm, so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that many runs in this state are not easy. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this area has a large number of paddling rivers. This is one of a small number of paddling stretches in this river system, there are a few others too. When you're paddling down a Southern Cascade Range river like this one you always get great scenery along the way too.
