This route, except for a short paddle through Shannon Lake, follows the Nictaux River entirely, as it
winds its way down the north face of the South Mountain, on its way to the Annapolis Valley floor. Winding
through undeveloped woodland, it offers a genuine feeling of remoteness, and will test the paddler's moving
water skills. There are three sets of rapids on the route, and all can be bypassed via portages. The river is part
of the Nova Scotia Power Nictaux Development, and water levels will fluctuate with the demands of power
generation. It is recommended that this route be taken only during moderate to high water levels. Low water
levels do not allow enough water volumes for easy passage down the route. This route can be done in whole
(2 days) or in parts depending on what access area you chose.
Please note that the South Shore Annapolis Valley Trail is a multi-use trail. There is a waterfall located
at the eastern area of the dam. Refer to Michael Haynes’ Hiking Trails of Mainland Nova Scotia for a more
detailed description. Due to water fluctuations, many prefer to paddle the canal and carry into the head pond
of the Nictaux Dam for a paddle exploration and return in one day.
