Petawawa Wildwater - Lake Travers to McManus

The Petawawa will be HUGE on the long weekend, and the ice will be going out late this year. There are portage for all of the C3 rapids. This is an awesome opportunity to watch some of Ontario's best paddlers tackle some really tough runs. Rollway is the longest toughest wildwater ride in the Near North. If your one of those best we will support you at the bottom! At high water there are miles of C2 rapids that provide some challenging maneouvring. Suitable for advanced C2 paddlers who are comfortable maneouvring in big waves, and experts of course. Do not use auto-signup as we do not have internet at our home. Phone or email us to confirm participation.
