Description   EN   

Long walk along the Ragged Rapids Sidetrail on the Ganaraska trail.

a 11km round trip hike through prime bear country. The trails are clearly marked, but still hard to follow.

The bears here will only run as fast as the slowest member of your party, so choose your accompanying geocachers wisely. A hike of this nature will also REQUIRE drinking water. Dehydration can cause dizziness, and a fair amount of this hike will require balancing atop cliff edges. You will be doing a lot of hiking over some of the most even terrain in Ontario to get here, so pack wisely.

This cache is at the very end of the Lower Ragged Rapids, where the granite boulder field meets a sandy riverbed pool, and turns into calm water once more. Off the top of my head, you will need to pass at least 4 plunge waterfalls, and a slew of rapids along the black river to get to this point.. So Canoes are not recommended, unless you are coming from the west (then your guess is as good as mine!)

 The Absolute closest parking spot. If your car does manage to make it all the way here, you will be faced with a pedestrian bridge leading into the wilderness from this point. Follow the White Blaze Trail from this point
