This trip will explore the north end of Upper Richardson Lake.  After departing the Mill Brook boat ramp, we’ll have a short 30-minute trip into the protected West Arm. We’ll then paddle around the secluded West Arm and then out and around Beaver and Big Beaver Islands. After a stop on Big Beaver Island, we’ll continue down the west shore of the lake to Cranberry Cove, an excellent area for wildlife and waterfowl viewing. Our return paddle will include views of Saddleback Mountain and Upper Dam.  Once back aboard the “Gray Ghost”, you’ll be able to enjoy lunch (provided by you) while the kayaks are loaded and we will then return to Mill Brook Landing.
