Where are we going today?
Clearwater River Provincial Park encompasses much of the Clearwater River, designated a Canadian Heritage River in 1986 for its cultural and historic significance. The Clearwater River flows westward, carving an ever-deepening valley that transforms from the smooth, dark granite of the Canadian Shield to narrow canyons and cliffs of fossiliferous dolomite and limestone. The rapids on the Clearwater range from Class II to Class IV+ with one spectacular waterfall. The waterfall is an ancient site held sacred by the valley’s first inhabitants, and traditionally believed to possess healing powers.
