    Hey everyone,
    I’ll be heading up to my buddy’s cottage near bancroft for a few days in the coming weeks and was thinking of taking a trip up to palmers. If anyone could give some info on the river, location, class etc that would be great. im a solid class III+ boater and want something fairly challenging, but i’ll also be bringing up a beginning to the sport, so are there area’s with varied difficulty?
    Thanks a lot!

    I’m a pretty inexperienced paddler, my wife even more so. We went up there at the end of the summer last year and it’s perfect for a beginner. Not sure about the water levels though, it may be higher now then when I was there last year. It’s easily accessible, super easy to scout and definitely not too scary for a beginner. have fun

    Palmer’s at this time of year is great for a beginner. As for Class III rapids, you won’t find much there. You can run the first drop right at Palmer’s but there isn’t really much to it. The Lower Madawaska should be runnable but at this level may not be challenging enough for you, also pretty good for a beginner though.

    was there last weekend, Palmer has more flow than usual for this time of year, and the lower Mad run was a nice run, all fairly easy stuff and OK for a beginner

    oh, and pretty wild, the amount of devastation around Combermere where the tornado went through. makes you really appreciate the power of nature
