    I have not paddled the Gatineau yet and may not make the festival this weekend but I do plan on paddling there next week. I have a few questions:
    1) What are the rapids like?
    2) Is there anything I should avoid (I’ve paddled 7 years and have done rivers like the Slave and the Ottawa)?
    3) What are the lines?
    Thanks

    If you have never done the gatineau, you should give it a try during the festival. All the rapids a relatively easy Class III-IV- big water, a bit like the Ottawa. You can easily scout everything and there is going to be a bunch of people to show you the lines.

    Its pretty straight forward really … Take a look before you run if you are not sure because there are a couple of big holes but there are no hard lines. You will be fine

    Have fun !
