    Howdy,

    I am headed up there to paddle this year finally after getting skunked over the last 5 seasons. I just need driving directions to the river, info on shuttle and take out…and is the party any good? Worth hanging out for on Saturday evening?

    Any info would be great! Thanks in advance <img loading=” title=”Smile” />

    Jeff, it’s really easy, take 35 to Huntsville, then HWY 11 to North Bay. In North Bay take HWY 63 to Quebec / Temiskaming. In Temiskaming take 101 direction Ville-Marie. This gets you straight into Laniel.
    The put-i to run the dam is at the boat launch in Laniel, easy to see, essentially right off the HWY.
    To get to the take out drive about 8 km north on the HWY, then turn left when you see the sign for the road to the Grande Chute (forgot the name of it), follow it until you see the fork where one sign points to the Grande Chute. Don’t follow that, go straight until you get to the end of the road with the gate at Scott Sorensen’s property. That’t the takeout, park your vehicle there somewhere.

    Staying Saturday night has always been worth it, the party is pretty good, IMHO. Bring a bugjacket!

    Are you going to take your C1 down the river :wink: ?

    TGG!

    That seems pretty straight forward <img loading=” title=”Smile” />

    I am going to kayak this one…I have a feeling that my legs would rebell after 2 hrs of river running and I want to enjoy this one!

    Thanks again, Jeff

    Just remembered the name of the dirt road that goes towards the takeout, it is Chemin Topping.

    Oh, and you don’t have to stay in your C1 for 2 hours straight, you are actually allowed to get out once in a while to stretch your legs <img loading=” title=”Very Happy” /> !

    TGG!
