I’m heading to MLPP next week to paddle some of the Waterhen with a friend from France. Couple of questions. If you had to chose between Howe bay to the Goodsoil bridge or the G’bridge down to Dorintosh which section would you chose? Which of the campgrounds, on the Boreal trail, are particularly nice? Also need a connection for a shuttle. Any taxis in the area?
I was there in June for a couple weeks with Des, birding and loved the park. I thought it would be a nice little river to take my girlfriend for a paddle.

It was awhile ago, but some of this might be useful.

The Waterhen River hasn't dropped much this summer due to the heavy rains in the area - currently running close to spring levels. That should make some of the shallows easier to paddle. Can't give advice on the two sections you are inquiring about as we usually paddle the section from bridge on hwy 903 to bridge on hwy 155 once or twice a year - nice overnighter with some real pretty sections of fast water through high hills and towering pines.

Good information from Rick. I would also contact Vinessa Currie at Clearwater Canoeing. That's her back yard.

Thank you all.

I’ve talked to Vinessa and as you say Bryan, it is her back yard.
We had looked ‘round for the business when we were there in June but didn’t find it. We are all set now. Will be at her place for info and shuttle by tomorrow afternoon. She was a delight to talk with and I think, knows everything!!! there is to know of paddling in the park.

Good to hear Laura. Vinessa is young but very experienced, and very excited to share her passion for paddling.

Have a great trip!
Bryan
