You’ll start your drifting adventure at the Upper Maple Ridge Park river, and cruise on down toward the good stuff. While the ride down isn’t especially long, it can be a little rocky, so make sure you exercise caution.

The river runs quickly, so children shouldn’t be left unsupervised.

Once you arrive in the swimming oasis, the water is deep enough to immerse yourself in a refreshing dip. In addition, there’s a plethora of rocks and grassy areas to sit on under the sun while you dry off.
