Canemah - 1

Overlooking the Willamette River, Canemah Bluff Natural Area is a haven for history, hiking and habitat. Canemah comes from “canim” or “canoe” in Chinook. Situated just upstream of the rushing Willamette Falls, the riverside area of Canemah is where hundreds of generations of Native Americans beached their canoes to portage around the falls.
