I am considering a trip on the Coal river, accessed via Nahanni Range Road and the Flat River. I have spent quite a while looking for information on both of these rivers and haven't had much luck. Can anyone chip in? Thanks!

Don't know much about it, but Flat River is chock full of rapids and was only accessed a little bit upstream from the Nahanni by Albert Faille in the 20's or 30's. I looked at the maps back in the 70's while contemplating a possible trip, but gave up due to the access issues and rapids.

gpreston, I may have responded to you on another thread. The Coal is not accessed via the Flat, unless you want to do some major hiking. The Flat starts at Divide Lake and can be accessed by air or by driving the road to Tungsten. Historically, Otter Mel is correct about Failie being up there. As well, The McLeod brothers(they of the headless corpses) lost a boat full of gold at the 13 Steps. There are hotsprings and some rapids to Class 3. Nahanni Park has a guidebook for the river from Seaplane Lake down.
