Put in at Clam River Bridge, Map 1N6, Zone 22, N5245410, E317494. Watch for 3 sets of mini falls 2 km downstream, we lined canoe here. Paddle on to Ripple Pond, cross ~ 1 km to west end, enter Colinet River. Most rapids are ok to run, use your judgement, we are amateurs and did well. Water levels can determine the challenge, of course. Paddle ~ 16 km to the Colinet River Bridge, where the river enters St. Marys Bay. Map 1N4 Zone 22 N5232451, E306354

Recommend Maps 1:50,000 1N6, 1N5, & 1N4

Comment Edit to Directions: Should be 70 km west of St. John's
Edit to Time To Complete: Should be 1 Day NOT 1 Hour
