First Descent

Upper Hollow River Expedition 
Upper Hollow River, ON

This was truly an expedition as the four of us embarked on the first known descent of the Upper Hollow River. None of us had ever paddled together and by the time we completed the trip, this ragtag group of paddlers endured lengthy portages, clouds of blackflies, whitewater, mud, swamp slogs, bushwhacks and low water conditions. We were rewarded with good laughs, wildlife encounters, scenic canyons, cascades and a new group of paddling companions! 

Please note that the Upper hollow is an advanced route and should only be tackled if your skills with both moving water, bushwhacking and navigation permit.
