Husum Falls is an optional Class V rapid that requires teamwork, personal responsibility, and physical ability. Optional means guests are able to exit the raft above the waterfall, enjoy watching others from the safety of the banks, and then re-join the boat directly below the waterfall for the remaining four miles of river. Standards to run Husum Falls are determined by the river guide as the individual responsible for your safety.
There are no guarantees that you will run Husum Falls, but if you meet the criteria and water conditions are right, it is likely you’ll be running the falls! Husum Falls is a very small part of the overall amazing experience of the White Salmon River. Water levels determine when Husum Falls is commercially run-able and typically occurs later in the season. Check website for more details.
