If you're coming from Astoria it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. When you're paddling down a Coast Ranges river like this one you always get great scenery along the way
    too. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. On this section you do get some distance, you can easily run it on an afternoon. And of course,
there are campgrounds nearby. Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came.
