Diverse is how we would best describe the paddling in this mountain/prairie province. In the west of the province runs are characterized by beautiful backdrops, continuous rivers and cold water. Everything from mellow multi day floats in national parks to hairy class V creeking is available in the west. As you move further east the gradient drops but there are still plentiful paddling options for those looking to float mellow rivers in really unique surroundings. It is a huge province so don't neglect to look north and south too. A very worthwhile paddling destination in it's own right.

Trident Lake to Elk Creek
Clearwater River - Two of us paddled the Clearwater from Trident Lake on June 26, 2021 in a 10 foot Alpaka Forager two person inflatable whitewater canoe. We hiked 44 km over 2 days to get there from the Cut Off Creek staging area, then paddled out in one day. Our put in was about 62 km upstream of Elk Creek, and about 40 km upstream of the Cut Off Creek/Timber Creek put in. There were three class III rapids in the first 15 km or so, and then nothing else above class II except there were logs everywhere. Many, many tight log gardens, and several riverwide log jams that we had to haul our boats around. A few kms from the put in there was a blind corner that had a nearly completely obstructed log jam that we got through on the right but then immediately there was another log right in front of us that we narrowly missed by madly getting over through a channel that had a log in the middle that we somehow didn't hit. At the half way point (just downstream of where the wagon trail crosses the river) the entire river piled through mature forest - there was no clear channel anywhere and we had to haul our boat about 50 yards through bush and log jams in knee deep water. I wouldn't recommend paddling any part of the river above the Cut Off Creek/Timber Creek access because there are just too many logs and log jams.
