What You'll Like :
The Makobe River is one of the wild whitewater rivers that flow from the headwaters contained in Lady Evelyn-Smoothwater Provincial Park.
In the high water levels of spring and early summer, many of the numerous rapids may be run as Class I and ll by skilled whitewater paddlers, for a short but challenging trip.
The Makobe River has cut a series of narrow canyons through shield bedrock as it flows northward from the height of land to the Montreal River.
During summer, canoeing consists mainly of flatwater with some moving water, lining and numerous portages.
This waterway park offers numerous small waterfalls, scenic ravines and fishing.
