Overview

Ontario's Magnetawan River drains the western side of Algonquin Park into Georgian Bay. The "Mag" is a less-well-known whitewater river for paddlers as the water levels are suitable for canoeists for only part of the year - but, when the water is right, this is a great run. Our Black Feather trip "puts in" at Wahwashkesh Lake. Our four-day route takes us west - towards Georgian Bay. The river drops over 65 metres in a series of rocky rapids.
These range from easy Class 1 rapids to a few "heart-in-your-mouth" Class 3 runs. In between there are swifts, a few narrow lakes, and several short portages. The focus of the trip is on improving your whitewater skills in these technical rapids. The guides will help with your technique, maneuvers, and river-reading skills. You'll become more confident with experience and coaching as we paddle Canal Rapids, Three Snye Rapids, and Thirty Dollar Rapids. At night we'll prepare great meals around the campfire and re-tell stories of the day's adventures. Finally, on the last afternoon, we'll float under the Highway 69 bridge and take out at the River Haven Resort where your cars will be waiting. This is a great trip for intermediate and advanced whitewater canoeists. Note: The Lower Magnetawan River trip can be combined with the Upper Magnetawan River trip, which allows you to paddle the entire 7-day route.
