Saskatchewan River winds its way southward from Riding Mountain
National Park (See Map below) and empties into the
Assiniboine about 15 km. west of
Brandon near the Grand Valley campsite. It passes
through Minnedosa, Rapid City, and Rivers. As it approaches the
Assiniboine Valley it begins a rather sharp descent, providing rapids
that are quite challenging in the early summer, and virtually
impassible as the water levels drop.
