This paddle takes you through a couple of nice ponds and narrow rivers and even an ancient canal or two. There will be shallow stretches and probably beaver dams to either ram or climb. You will likely see a fair amount of wildlife on your trip, and certainly will have a nice time on this paddle.

You can launch and get out essentially from the water, but may have to carry your boat over a couple of beaver-dams
