Day Trip, Toronto Vicinity
Posted by: old_user on May-16-12 10:11 AM (EST)
We're headed up to Toronto Memorial Day weekend, and hoping to get some kayaking in during our trip. We definitely plan to spend some time exploring the Toronto Islands. However, we'd also like to take a day trip, somewhere within a 2 hour vicinity of Toronto. We'd prefer a lake/loop, rather than bother with a shuttle. We'd love a place good for a beginner/intermediate paddler, 15-18' poly kayaks, with scenic/wildlife views. Any suggestions?

"Anyway - yakkin' close to the City. The lakes you mention near Bobcaygeon are great water (I have friends with a cottage on an island in Stony Lake), but they are VERY busy, being part of the Trent/Severn waterway moving boats up through Lake Simcoe to Georgian Bay. Plus large parts of Buckhorn & Pigeon Lakes are Native Reserves, and they can get REALLY prickly about paddlers/fisherfolk in their waters. Yeah, seriously. Wouldn't be my choice.
