THE POWELL FOREST CANOE ROUTE
Are you planning on doing the Powell Forest Canoe Route in the traditional direction, Counter Clockwise? We will meet you at the date and time of your choosing to pack all your gear into our roomy vehicle and get you on your way. Most choose to do the Powell River Forest Canoe Route in this direction so they descend Cardiac Hill.
THE CANOE ROUTE (NON-TRADITIONAL DIRECTION)
Doing the canoe route clockwise (non-traditional) will likely bring you winds in your favor on the long Powell Lake paddle. The trade off is that you have to do Cardiac Hill in an uphill direction. Cardiac Hill is the 120 m ascent on the portage between Goat Lake and Windsor.
Forget Powell Lake
Do you only have a few days to enjoy our area? Start your adventure at the top in the highest, deepest lake on the route. Rich green water and mountain views are just stunning!
Get back in half the time.
