    Chris,

    I agree with the Gull in Minden, however from your previous post I gather that you as well as your girlfriend both are newbies.
    I would therefore strongly recommend that you stay below the Otterslide, i.e. in the washout at the lake until you have a good roll and some riverrunning skills, as the Otterslide is very shallow and has some extermely sharp quartzite rocks in it that are very unfriendly to swimmers or upside down boaters.

    TGG!

    If u want take an hour trek eastward to the Madawaska river – Particularly the Middle Madawaska. There are some easy class 1/2 runs that will keep you entertained.

    And if u think u need some training while ur there MKC – an excellent whitewater school, is a stonethrow away

    There is also the Oxtonge river thats closer but i cant vouch for it since im unfamiliar with that river.

    The only part of the Ox I have ever paddled is class 4-5…. Not sure if there is some easier stuff upstream of down, but the main part is not good for a beginner at all.

    From highway 60 down to the snowmobile bridge is a good class II run.

    Below as Rich said is mostly class III with 2 class IV-V thrown in. defintiely not a beginner run. Fun, but not beginnner.
