It is slightly on the "adventury" side of class 3+ due to wood movement. While not the most classic section of whitewater, it is well worth the effort if you are in the area and looking for something besides the Kicking Horse.

Proximity to town, ease of access, beautiful canyons, stunning water colour and exciting whitewater combine to create a classic section of river. The run starts off with a ferry and a portage around a beautiful waterfall before seal launching into a gorgeous class 2 canyon. A brief break in the canyon walls signals the beginning of the whitewater. When the canyon walls go vertical again you are treated to a short, ultra-continuous class 5 canyon. After this there is some fun class 3 boogie before the river mellows out and a short section of "BC flatwater" brings you to the takeout where you can head back up for more laps, continue on downstream for some woody braided channels that lead to a lovely set of class 2+ canyons, or call it a day.
