Paddle Taylor & Clayton Lakes

June 23

Come and explore nature from the water’s edge as we paddle the shores of Taylor and Clayton Lakes.  We will start at Taylor Lake looking for remnants of the historic floating bridge that once crossed the lake, then continue into Clayton Lake, all the while looking for various woodland, lake and marshland birds.  Lunch will likely be at the Robinson’s dock on Clayton Lake, if weather cooperates.  This outing is a combination of journeys #14 and #16 in the MVFN map/guide “Lanark County Canoe & Kayak Journeys“.

Car Pooling Arrangements:  Meet at Union Hall on Wolf Grove Road for departure by 8:30 AM.  The boat launch for Taylor Lake is at the north end of Concession Road 12.

Bring: Picnic lunch, water, binoculars, insect repellent, sunscreen, and swimming attire if you wish. You must also be equipped with mandatory life jackets and safety kit with bailer, whistle, flashlight and floating line.
