Saugeen River 2018

Excellent trip for beginners to learn how to trip for multiple days and to learn how to read a river.
the Saugeen has some moving water, mostly just ripples, no rapids to speak off
Ive done this trip multiple years in Snow and in Hot weather but always on Victoria
Day weekend,. So be prepared for all kinds of fun challenges.
Families with kids are welcome
