Clear Lake and Goose Neck Bay,

The Massasauga, Sept. 2011


We have wanted to canoe in The Massasauga Provincial Park for some time, and after a couple of canceled trips, we finally made our way there.  This would be our first canoe trip where we ventured beyond lakes and paddled into the Georgian Bay.  The weather was generally overcast and a little breezy, which led to some cool but spirited paddling in the bay.  In the end, it was another great trip.

From the Three Legged Lake Access, we took the 370 meter portage into Spider Lake and paddled south to the 90 meter portage into Frog Pond and onto the 165 meter portage into Clear Lake.  The next day, we took the 240 meter portage into Clear Bay.  We then paddled into Three Finger Bay and took the 235 meter portage into Goose Neck Bay.  On our last day out, we paddled into Spider Bay and took the 100 meter portage back into Spider Lake.  We finished up our trip with the 370 meter portage back into Three Legged Lake.
