A 1-km paddle up Mellon Creek brings us to a deep secluded lake, 4km long with only 15 cottages. Most of the
shoreline is crown land. Scenic granite ridges beside the lake are home to the five-lined skink, Ontario’s only
lizard. Weather permitting, we shall paddle the full length of the shoreline. Leisurely paddlers can keep pace
with the fleet by shortcutting across narrow bays and/or taking a siesta after lunch.
Distance: 10-15km. Full day paddle, all levels. No shuttle; no portages; no zebra-mussels. Call Dugald 613-542-8628
