Illinois River

OPB | July 5, 2007 1:30 p.m.

The Illinois river in Southwest Oregon is one of the most dangerous rivers in the state. With class 3/4 rapids, one right after another, only experienced rafters should navigate this whitewater. Treacherous passages like the “green wall” test rafters’ skill and bravery. But with scenic shorelines and peaceful surroundings, these expert guides show us how the Illinois, when taken seriously, can be enjoyed as one of Oregon’s most beautiful rivers.
