Miette River (AB) - Upper II

Fairly continuous grade 2 rapids through some beautiful forest. Everything is read and run but watch for log jams. One shot waves abound.

At some flows good eddy service feeds a surf wave just above the bridge, eddy river left.

Past the Meadow Creek confluence take the narrow left channel for some more technical paddling, there are few eddys in this channel though so watch for wood. Go right for a less technical line.
