Difficulty: Easy

Description:

Was a great weather day for a paddle. We put in just below the airport. The paddle was good. The water was average height for this area. It took about 3 hours to paddle.

We pulled out at the first culvert. This area is a large bog/swamp with limited views due the banks and all the vegetation.

We did see a Moose right before we pulled out. This area has most Moose sighting in the Vermont state. I think a early morning drive or late evening would be a great time to see one. Be Careful they are BIG.

All in all a great day.

Accommodations:

State Campground and Private in the Area.
We camped at Brighton State Park. This is a great place to camp. Clean/Clean all over. Paddling on the pond right next to your site. The Loons are there also.

Fees:

Only Camping site Fees. The cabins are your best bet. Bring along the electric coffee pot and a small portable heater/fan and who's better than you.

Directions:

From Island Pond, VT head south on RTE 105. Put in about 1/2 mile south of the airport on your right.

Takeout is about 4 miles south where the road crosses a culvert; steep bank.
