Events in April 2019
- LOWER SALMON RIVER WHITEWATER PADDLE
LOWER SALMON RIVER WHITEWATER PADDLE
Paddle the scenic, cedar-fringed Lower Salmon River starting at Roblin and continuing for 12 km to Kingsford through swifts and Class 1-2 rapids with two short portages.
Some whitewater experience, plus cold-water protection (e.g., wetsuit), and suitable watercraft and equipment, are essential as the water will be frigid and at peak levels. Call Mark on his cell: 613-328-6854 to take part.
(Note: Plans may be changed, rescheduled, or cancelled depending on weather and water levels. A parking fee at Kingsford Conservation Area may apply.)

- MASSASSAUGA CREEK PADDLE
MASSASSAUGA CREEK PADDLE
The club’s first flat water paddle of the season, and another CCC classic orchestrated by Janice and Eric. There may be snow on the banks but it’s intoxicating to be afloat again. There are invariably beaver dam lift-overs which may be better handled by canoe. A short bush whacking hike will be arranged around the lunch stop.
The creek is sheltered but water and air temperatures remain low. Contact Janice for details: 613-542-9958 or email Janice.email@example.com
- SECOND WHITE WATER RUN ON LOWER SALMON
SECOND WHITE WATER RUN ON LOWER SALMON
Paddle the scenic, cedar-fringed Lower Salmon River starting at Roblin and continuing for 12 km to Kingsford through swifts and Class 1-2 rapids with two short portages.’ This will be CCC second run on the Lower Salmon, but likely one of many for Dugald.
Water and air temperature will have warmed to some extent, but check with Dugald (613-542-8628) as you sign up, to see if a wet suit is essential and/or you have sufficient white water experience.
- HARDWOOD CREEK, VERONA TO PETWORTH.
HARDWOOD CREEK, VERONA TO PETWORTH.
When raised by spring runoff, Hardwood Creek and the Napanee River provide a secluded 18km paddle with a 19km shuttle. Mostly flatwater and gentle current but includes about 300 m of swifts with bouncy waves at Petworth.
Suitable for all padlers, with an option to shorten the trip to 13km by taking out 1km north of Petworth. 19km Shuttle. Call Bob at 613-384-4482 to take part
- MOIRA RIVER WHITEWATER PADDLE
MOIRA RIVER WHITEWATER PADDLE
Paddle the Moira River from Lost Channel near Tweed to Latta with a short shuttle in the middle. More challenging than the Napanee or Salmon Rivers, but still Class 2 rapids with the occasional touch of Class 3 if water levels are high. This has been a long time favourite of many in the club. It is suitable for beginner whitewater and intermediate paddlers depending on the water levels.
Participants must have suitable cold water protection (e.g. wetsuit). Club boats may be rented to members. Call Steve: 613-542-1054"Kingston Gets Active" Hike
