Kayaking the Upper Clyde River - Shallow Crossing

Overview

From Nelligen the Clyde River snakes 25 kilometres to the tidal limit at Shallow Crossing. Explore the tributaries and be prepared to cross shallow water spots and pebble races.
Launch spots either side of the causeway at the privately owned campground at Shallow Crossing.

Paddle another 10 to 15 kilometres up this lush, freshwater section depending on the water level, flows and accessibility.
Expect to experience shallow water, small rapids and trees across the river. If the water levels are high, drive up River Road to Brooman and launch from there for a worthwhile one-way trip down the river to Shallow Crossing.
