The Black River is a synonym for serenity, this winding river takes you to remote sections where you feel as if you are kilometers away from civilization. This popular waterway has it all, from several small white-water sections which are popular among beginner white-water paddlers to peaceful paddling towards the village of Washago by connecting to the Green River. The river has a strong cultural and spiritual connection with the Mnjikaning Anishnaabeg this river was used by them to travel South from Muskoka. This route is the perfect mix between a calm paddle, exciting white-water sections, and cultural significance. Plan to stay over night at Black River Wilderness Park, or extend your paddle on the Black River or Green River.
