    Never done a waterfall and I hear this one’s pretty safe soo…Some of us are going to run the Trick or Treat Falls, near Fitzroy harbour, on the Québec side. We’ll meet anyone who’d like to join to carpool at Champlain Bridge tomorrow at NOON. Please let me know if you’d like to join. Here’s a link to how to get there from Hull Qc:

    Wondering what the level was like? I did these little falls a couple of years ago and it was fun, but can’t remember the time of year.
    Basically just the drop and then scramble back up to do it again, right?

    For someone like me, never having gone over a waterfall, it was probably the best experience ever! The water was deep enough to pencil in and the height (maybe 10 feet…) low enough to practice boofing with all the aerated water at the bottom. We went over many times, no problems with climbing back up the small cliff, just push your boat up and climb after it. Hard to miss the line, you just go with the current, go down a small curving pour over and you are airborne, for like a second or less and end in a nice soft landing. I strongly recommend it for anyone who wants to try going over a small waterfall in a safe way. Grahamme even went in backward, with no issues and Chris did some cartwheels and landed on his side without difficulties. If you do jump in without your boat, be careful though, there are some rocks which can catch your knees…

    level is low but good, as easy as it gets. 7 ft drop
    elbow pads if you think you’re gonna flip, enough depth in landing but gets shallow fast.
    private property above bridge, landowner tired of partys on his property so don’t bother going up there at all.
