Trip Details We will launch at the Jordan Harbour Conservation Area. We will paddle across the harbour, up the river until it becomes too small and shallow, and then return to the launch site. Plan to bring snacks in your boat as there is no public land to stop for lunch along the river. We can eat lunch upon returning to the conservation area/launch. Bring a chair or blanket if staying for lunch. Please note that since this is a rec paddle we will not be paddling on Lake Ontario to see the shipwreck (also the masts have been removed).
