Madawaska is a very fun River to do, not far from Toronto or Ottawa. I ran it in september of 2009 and the water was very low. Didn't run slate falls or highland falls because of the water level but otherwise a very fun river. Portages are very easy and not very remote but fun none the less. Easy to complete in 2 days (don't have to hustle), great river.

The Madwaska is an awsome river that can be run in 2 days or you can spend a week on it a realy enjoy the rapids. there is a good hike up a Jamison Mtn. from the camp site at the end of the rapids on river left after the "falls"
I do not understand what CBR means but all of the rapids are runnable by a Level 1 Moving water paddler and a level 2 MW paddler can run the bolth of the "falls" and have fun while doing it
Though there was that canoe I found wraped around a rock. I gues that they did not pass the course.

I am biased here because I helped Leo Mednick test his product ... also, I am NOT a paddler ... regardless, if you are looking for a great gift for yourself or for anyone who likes the great outdoors, either from a canoe or hiking along the river's edge, then Leo's electronic book is a perfect choice. You will enjoy both stills and videos and find useful maps plus a few very enjoyable articles.
