Oregon Adventure: Paddling the Rocky Point Canoe Trail

Oregon adventure following the Rocky Point canoe trail written and photographed by Juliet Grable Oregon Adventure Rocky Point The sky seems twice as big in Rocky Point, especially from a kayak.

In early June, three buddies and I took off from Klamath Falls in an attempt to tackle the Oregon Outback, a multiday bikepacking trail that traverses the state. Despite not one of us having any bikepacking (camping by bike) experience whatsoever, the plan was for us to ride north almost entirely on gravel and old forest roads for 364 miles, ending where the Deschutes River flows into the Columbia River, about 15 miles east of The Dalles. We figured it’d be a cross between Lewis and Clark and Easy Rider, but on bicycles, and with fewer drugs. Six days, four river crossings and 14,000…
