MVFN Fall Colours Paddle on White Lake

For our annual fall colours paddle we will travel route #7 as described in our MVFN Lanark County Canoe & Kayak Journeys guide/map:

“West end White Lake is like northern lakes with rocky shores, beautiful island scenes, wetland coves and bays. Makes for interesting and peaceful meander along shores and around islands. Watch for unusual creek opening on north shore leading to falling brook. Interesting rock formations and wild flowers. Scan the skies for the bald eagle which nests in the region.”
