Service Description

A great start for beginners and families. The Milk River is a low volume and slow moving river, however there are some rapids, up to class II that add some excitement. This trip offers sand stone canyons and hoodoo walls, grass lands and rolling hills. This is a great place to learn with an easy start then building features leading to the class 2 rapids. The wild life viewing opportunities include Great Horned Owls, Burrowing Owls, Hawks, Badgers, Foxes, and the Yellow Belly Marmot. This is one of the last areas where the North American grassland remained intact along with its ecology. Expect and easy start to the trip on day one with a river side lunch and cruisy safety talk. our first nights camp will be at Cold Springs camp ground. This camp ground offers showers and flush toilets. Day two will see more consistent class 1&2 low volume rapids. As the river carves deeper into the landscape there are more prominent sandstone walls and canyons. An exciting day as the challenge builds and the landscape becomes increasingly more impressive. The second night camping is done at Poverty Rock. Another comfortable camp site with shelters and outhouses. This site is maintained by Alberta Parks and is a beautiful place to spend the night. Day three starts off with a short hike in search of petroglyphs and then a full days paddle into Writing on Stone National Park. There we will set up camp in another beautiful camping facility again complete with a store, showers and plumbing.
