Eau Claire Gorge Guided Hike

Event Date: Jul 28, 2017 - Jul 28, 2017


Explore one of Ontario's most historic and scenic Conservation Areas on July 29 as the North Bay-Mattawa Conservation Authority hosts a free guided hike at the Eau Claire Gorge Conservation Area. 

The hike runs from 9:30 to 11 am. The most spectacular scenic feature is the Gorge itself, where the Amable du Fond flows between sheer rock walls in a dramatic series of rapids and waterfalls.  Below the Gorge the river widens and winds its way through a cluster of islands before flowing into Smith Lake.

Guiding the 1.5 hour hike is Liz Lott. The theme of the hike is "Nature and Photography".  Discover nature through the camera lens.  Bring your camera, phone, DSLR or manual camera.

Need a ride?  A limited number of seats are available on a bus that departs  at 8:15 am from the 1881 Cassells Street (New Ontario Brewery). Reserve a seat on the bus by calling 705 474-5420. Or meet us there!

The Hike is free and part of NBMCA's Mattawa River Canoe Race weekend which features the July 29 64 km canoe/kayak/SUP race from North Bay to Mattawa and a family/junior race which follows the final 13 km of the race route!  For more information on the Race visit www.mattawarivercanoerace.ca or email paula.loranger@nbmca.ca.
