LYNDHURST TO OUTLET PADDLE
Interesting, long, and potentially arduous trip. From Lyndhurst to portage, reasonably sheltered about 10 km; the portage from Red Horse Lake to Donaldson Bay in Charleston Lake about 450 m; the paddle on Charleston lake to dock at Outlet, about 13 km, is more exposed to wind. The trajectory is south, north, east, south-east, finally south, so no matter whence the wind comes, if it comes, it will be a head wind sometime. If conditions deteriorate, we can turn back at any point up to the portage. Once in Charleston Lake we are committed to finish at Outlet.
Distance approx. 23km. Challenge level – for experienced paddlers only. Contact Ed at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 613 389-4459.
