Chain of Lakes September 17-23, 2024

Trip  Leaders:  Suzy McCain & Marian Fischer

Level 3 trip

Join us  to paddle the Chain of Lakes Water Trail a 99+ mile inland water trail made up of 12 lakes and interconnected rivers. The chain includes Torch Lake and we plan on spending one day there with a lunch/ice cream stop at the general store in Alden. We plan on four days of paddling (possibility of a night paddle from the campground) with a day off to hike, bike or explore the surrounding area. Chalevoix is half hour away and Petoskey is an hour away.
Camping will be at Thurston Park ,(
7854 E Bradford St, Central Lake, MI 4962) a very nice small campground in Central Lake Michigan. There are six waterfront sites available at $35 a night and several off water sites at $28 a night.

Level 2 and above Seakayak Trips are limited to members who have demonstrated, prior to participation, the ability to:

·       Safely exit their kayak while wearing a spray skirt

·       Participate in an assisted rescue to re-enter their kayak

Registration for every trip is always conditional upon final approval by the Trip Leader. The Trip Leader may communicate with you to assess whether your skills & equipment are appropriate for the conditions.
