    Come for some whitewater fun. Good river paddling skills are required as this is considered a Class ll and lll river. Various sections of the river can be run depending on the abilities of the group. These will be decided upon by the group once we get there.

    Camping will be where we can find it along the road at one of the many "camp" areas.

    This gem of a river is often called the "weekend Nahanni" because of spectacular mountain scenery, whitewater that is the limit for open canoe tripping, waterfalls, tufa springs, and sometimes great wildlife. Although it is a long drive to get there, it's worth it. We'll put in at Settlers Crossing and paddle to the White River. We may camp at McLeod Meadows on Friday evening so a park pass may come in handy.

    The Smoky River below McLeod Flats is reported to be much like the Nordegg Run on our beloved North Saskatchewan... just a bit bigger, & longer... and good clas!  I'm flexible on dates in early to mid August and expect this to be a day's travel on each side, and about 4-5 days camping on the river.  I would suggest that a couple of times on the Nordegg run would prepare one for this paddle... modestly good river skills will be required.  But then, it is mostly a new trip for me... so a bit exploratory... unless we can find a local to join us.  I expect we'll organize a meeting or two prior to arrange transport and meals.
