Dove Canyon

Distance: 1.1 km
Time: 4–6 hours
Get in: Cradle Mountain
Get out: Cradle Mountain
Water level: There is a ruler/indicator at the entry abseil. If water is above this don’t proceed, highly dangerous at high flows.

Beautiful canyon in the cradle mountain area.

This a serious whitewater canyon involving a 12m abseil in to it and a series of jumps/abseils (tallest being 6m) in to pools and constrictions. There is little to no escape options for most of its length.

Having an experianced canyon leader along is escential for this trip along with local knowlege of water levels as this canyon becomes highly dangerous in strong flow due to recirculating stoppers etc.
