This trip starts on the Nith River and goes into the Grand River. The Grand River averages 1 meter in depth with 2 meter deep pools. Many first time canoe, kayak, stand up paddle board clients prefer this route as it makes for a relaxing day or the perfect introduction.
The Paris to Brant Park route is a scenic paddle from a quaint town setting into a pristine wilderness. The section has moving shallow rapids at 1 km mark and then easy going after that.
Some of the highlights are swimming areas and drinkable spring water ( please drink the spring water at your own risk, we just had one family report (Aug 29.2020) for the first time, that they got sick, and they believe drinking the spring water was the cause. This is the first time in 15 years, practising due diligence, we feel it is important to make people aware of this claim).
There are picnic stops and portable washrooms at the 9 km mark on this route.
The trip starts in the town of Paris, Ontario, which gives you access to stores and amenities right at the starting point.
