Squirrel Rapids

Trip Overview

First time doing small rapids. Very excitting. Started at squirrel Rapids headed towards the Petawawa River. Made a pit stop for lunch then shortly after turned around. Would like to make it all the way down to the Petawawa River next time. Can hear a waterfall. Saw a large snapping turtle. Portage was overgrown and long. So decided to attempt paddling upstream. Worked out, but was tough work!
