Panther River - The Panther is a tributary of the Red Deer River, and can be run as a beginner-level river when the Red Deer is too high. Generally run when the Red Deer is between 90 - 140 cms, at which point the Panther is roughly at 20 cms. It is a relatively narrow and low volume stream with many good eddies, and it is narrow enough to permit throw-bag and other rescue scenario practice.
The Panther flows quite quickly, but only has one rapid of note. The S-bend comes about 1/3 of the way into the run at a trailer campsite which has boulders on the banks.
The major danger on the Panther is wood. It would be wise to scout the full run for wood before paddling with beginners on the river.
