Who could pass up including a site called Rozy Cozy Rapids? I got the name from Mapsbyjeff.com If you like adventure, especially by canoe or kayak, be sure to check out Jeff's awesome maps.

Of the three rapids at Whitney, this one was my favourite. It is right beside the road and easy to access. I suspect that the flow drops significantly during summer. But when I visited, it was a bonafide cascade, and not just a gentle rapids.

The river constricts significantly and steams through a narrow rock channel before once again opening into a wide, shallower boulder garden. The river falls maybe 2 metres. Several large rock knobs on the south side offer great vantage points.

Parking is on the roadside. The road is not busy, and I don't think that any cars drove by during my 15 minute visit. But there is a blind corner, so as always, use caution when parking along the road.
