Southern Ontario Classic

Probably not where you expect to find whitewater kayaking:


While Toronto doesn't have any whitewater - well it doesn't have any that's yet been found - southern Ontario suprisingly has a pretty decent array of rivers for boating. There's river running, play boating and even some nice big park n huck waterfalls - remarkable really for a zone that's flat as a pancake when you drive through. The only downside is the cold weather - things often run during big thaws in the middle of the winter, and it goes right back to cold after the rains have fallen - the hearty lads down there don't seem to mind though!

About an hour west of Toronto lies the hamlet of Dundas - home to southern Ontario's #1 creek - Spencer Creek. Check out the beta courtesy of Geoff Boyd, as well as these photos captured from video to learn what it's all about.
