In 2014 Tony and I had done a packraft trip starting at Bock's Creek arriving back at the Alaska Highway via the Duke River, Black Valley pass and the Donjek River. Over Canada Day weekend 5 of us took on a variation of this route. The caste of characters this time was Dylan Stewart, Sky Pearson, Josh DeCloet and rookie/team geologist Dustin Rainey. We started hiking up Copper Joe Creek at 2:30 and arrived at Cache Lake by 6:30. The old exploration road that went up this valley is mo...

In 2013 Paul C, Dylan and I had paddled the Primrose River. We were all pretty new to paddling (especially Dylan) and not as well equiped as we should have been (especially me) to tackle all the river. As a result we walked quite a few rapids. We were hoping to tackle more of the river this time with the exception of the Class 5 canyon which is no place for packrafts.  The route starts at the end of Annie Lake Road with a hike into Primrose Lake. From there we paddle the upper Primrose…

The goal of the trip was to make our way from mile post 222 of the North Canol Road to Norman Wells. We planned to paddle the Tsichu and Keele Rivers pulling out at the Twitya confluence. At the confluence we’d hike up the Twitya River and then Trout Creek to gain the Canol Heritage Trail. Once on the remains of the trail (some very good-some totally gone) we’d hike the trail to Devil’s Pass and then onto the Carcajou River. At the Carcajou we’d paddle downstream to a suspected impassable…

Anthony and I had packrafted a portion of the Duke on our way to the Donjek in 2014. Trip reports can be found here https://pburbidge.exposure.co/bocks-creekdukedonjek-packraft-trip and here https://adelorenzo.exposure.co/donjek At our 2014 Duke take out the river was getting really fun. We knew that the 15 km above the highway bridge had been paddled in 2010. A gap of about 10 river km existed between our 2014 trip and the 2010 trip that looked like good times t...
