Livingstone River - From Livingstone Falls to the confluence with the Upper Oldman the river cuts through a steep short shale canyon. Livingstone Falls is a short 15' slide beside the parking area. After this bit of excitement there is 10 km Class II paddle down to the true start of the run in the little canyon.
From this mid-point putin, the Livingstone canyon runs 10 km down to the Oldman and then another 6 km to the takeout. There are numerous waterfalls off the lip of the canyon into the river. The last river is characterized by lots of sharp corners and headwalls with good sloping shalebeds that create smooth surf waves at medium to higher flows. After the confluence with the Oldman, the volume of water doubles and there are some larger drops with bigger waves .
