Illecillewaet River - An after work local favorite, this beautiful narrow canyon finishes downtown Revelstoke. Unfortunately, a glacial flood from Woolsey creek upstream deposited copious amounts of wood along the river several years back and created a massive log jam immediately below the biggest rapid on the run (KOA). At medium-high flows this log jam poses a serious hazard with water moving fast from the rapids upstream into and under the 50m long pile of logs. Portage is mandatory and best done on river right. The narrow nature of the canyon above KOA is also prone to collecting wood. Use extra caution or check with the locals on the current wood situation before dropping in.
