Description

This is a good and safe launching spot just downstream of the rapids. The next kilometre of the river is simply gorgeous. I especially recommend heading towards the islands. Please be aware there is a MAJOR DAM DOWNSTREAM! But there is no way you’ll miss it. If you really want to follow the river, you can land at Parc Montcalm-Taché on the North shore just ahead of the dam (still a safe distance), portage along Boul. Alexandre-Taché (which becomes Rue Laurier) until heading down the bike path at the corner of Rue Laurier and the aptly-named Pont du Portage (Portage Bridge) which will take you right back down to the river. This is a 1.3km portage. I’m not sure if there are other options, but this seems like the simplest one.
