Crossover Kayak Trips or Routes


Reid Lake to Powder Point
Cameron River - A scenic and generally very relaxed flatwater paddle, with multiple put-in and take-out options. There are a few very short but runnable pool and drop rapids for those who want to run them, or they can be portaged. The upper section can also be a nice lazy float in tubes, etc. There are two waterfalls and a 2m ledge that must be portaged. Below the bridge is a 50m stretch of easy class I with two good eddies that can be useful for teaching beginner skills.
Tartan Rapids
Yellowknife River - The longest stretch of continuous whitewater in the Yellowknife area. It's only about 150 m long, but there are enough features to practice most whitewater maneuvers. There's also a 100m portage trail so you can run laps or skip the rapids altogether if you'd prefer a flatwater paddle. There's a 2.5 km paddle across Prosperous Lake to get to the rapids. Afterward, you can return to the put-in or continue about 10 km down the river for a longer flatwater trip.
