Route 21 – East Branch Medway River

This route is NOT recommended for NOVICE and INTERMEDIATE paddlers

The route is comprised of the East Branch of the Medway River, the Medway River proper, and Port
Medway Lake. Although there are a number of stillwaters along the river, the majority of the route is a series of
“drop pools” connected by rips, runs and falls. Navigating these sections requires a high level of technical
whitewater skills and safety consciousness. Navigability is affected dramatically by water levels, and is
generally limited to spring and fall. River canoes equipped with air bags are recommended. Inspection of runs
for obstacles and reading of water prior to navigating is also recommended. The route is recommended for
EXPERT paddlers only.

The river was traditionally used for log driving, and evidence of this activity can be seen in old dams
and sluiceways, and runs cleared of rocks. These old dams and sluiceways must be approached with caution,
as many iron bolts, spikes and other hardware are imbedded in submerged timbers near them. The river flows
through the former Bowater Mersey’s Medway District, now Crown lands, where logging activity may be
encountered, and the Medway Lakes Wilderness Area, where vehicle access is restricted.

The area is not developed, and offers the experienced paddler an opportunity for exciting paddling in
a remote setting.
