Moira River Play and Learn

The Moira River north of Belleville provides some fun paddling from Lost Channel to Latta on a spring day. Given the very early spring, water levels should be moderate, and there should be some good play spots. The river at this level provides a great opportunity for good novice moving water paddlers to move up to an intermediate level river. We'll meet at Chisholm's Mill at 9:30, do a car shuttle, and then warm up the easier lower section down to Latta. The rapids are not difficult; just a rollercoaster ride, with some surfing waves along the way. We'll go back to Chisholm's for lunch, and then do a shuttle to run the more technical and challenging Lost Channel section. We should finish up around 4:00, and then we can hit the nearby dairy along the highway. Boats should have full flotation, and you will need a wetsuit or drysuit. Please book immediately.
