Dumoine, Rivière

The Dumoine, 129 km long, rises in Lac Dumoine in southwest Québec and flows off the south edge of the Laurentian Highlands through a series of waterfalls, wild rapids and long chutes into the Ottawa River. It was an important route in the early fur trade, being used by the Huron to avoid tolls charged by the Allumette or Iroquois raids on southerly routes. Later, superb white pines were floated down the river, and decayed log chutes are still visible. Still in a wild state, the Dumoine is a popular canoe route.
