Lower Mad Wine and Cheese Float

Join us for the almost annual spring paddle/wine and cheese party and find out why reasonably intelligent and mature persons subject themselves to the vicissitudes of spring canoe camping. We paddle from above Aumond Rapids to Griffith, a distance of only 28 km. The pace is leisurely with only Sunday being a full day of paddling and most of it spent on the Snake Rapids section of the river. Lots of time to play, socialize and nibble.Rapids range from Class 1-4 with the ability to portage most and there are 2 portages around waterfalls.Water levels are usually high and cold. In the past we have had rain, sleet and snow...all in the same day so intermediate level paddlers must be dressed and equipped for al eventualities. Limit 6 tandem boats with some priority for new and newish members.
