Emergency Action Plans for the Crowsnest River

To ensure a safe and fun day on the river be prepared with an Emergency Action Plan for your group. We have created plans with maps including rapid classifications emergency numbers and spaces to fill in your own emergency information. All of our favourite runs will be included here soon in PDF, if you have some great pictures to add from your trip please send them to us.

Crowsnest Frank to East Hillcrest
Grade II mostly, with a short III- rapid to start. Put in below it to avoid this. 
From the boulder sieve below Frank Lake underneath the slide to the East Hillcrest Bridge. Good run with lots of fast paced action  ​
West Blairmore to Frank
Grade II.
This small creek run on the Crowsnest River right through Blairmore and down to Frank. Easily accessible from the Lost Lemon Mine campground, there are lots of good eddies and fast runs on this section down to Frank. Fisheries mitigation work in 1990 has created lots of good eddies and small surf waves. If you paddle down to the Turtle Mtn Lake there is a Class III- rapid and then you can paddle back up to the Gold Creek takeout with a short carry up.
