Route Description
Access to Put-In Information: 

Best wheelchair access is at Great Chief Park in Red Deer. Other access points suitable for those who can walk with assistance.

Technical Guide: 

Put in at the Bridge west of Innisfail. A few sweepers in the smaller channels; easily avoided by sticking to the main channel . Route ends at the Waskasoo Creek - because that's where my house is!

Trip Journal/Log/Report/Diary: 

Paddled this solo in my rec kayak with no difficulties.
