Clayton Lake Canoe/Kayak Outing

Clayton Lake Canoe/Kayak Outing

August 12, 2012

The adventure begins in the village of Clayton along the northwest side of Clayton Lake to the site of the floating bridge and back to Clayton. This trip is a variation of #16 on the MVFN’s Canoe/Kayak Brochure. The trip begins at the dam in the village of Clayton and follows the northwest shore towards the Galbraith bridge where the Indian River feeds into Clayton Lake, then continues following the NW shore to Thompson’s Black Rock Park and on to site of the former 12th Concession floating bridge and back to the Clayton dam. Lunch will either be at Thompson’s or at 12th Concession near Lloyd. We will watch for large wild rice beds, white & yellow lilies, ducks and marsh birds along north shore and east end of lake. Over a dozen Loons were spotted about the lake on July 28, 2012.

Car Pooling: East Lanark: Union Hall, for departure 9 am.

Bring: Lots of drinking water, binoculars, lunch, bug juice, life jackets (mandatory). Every vessel needs a safety kit (bailer, floating throw line, pea-less whistle & flashlight). An extra paddle is recommended per vessel.
