Recommended Posts

Squam Lake Navigation paddle Sunday June 29th

This will a fun paddle with a focus on enjoying Squam Lake (like any paddle there), and also on navigation: Squam Lake is scenic, dotted with islands, with lots of bite -sized crossings from island to island: a great place to practice navigation by moving from island to island using chart and compass.

L2 trip which may become L3 trip if there is wind and/or fog.

General plan will be the nickel tour of Squam Lake : Piper Cove to Bowman and Moon islands, thence to “The Yards” and Rattlesnake Cove , and return via Long Island and the Three Sisters . Loat plan is flexible.
Total trip distance will be about nine miles.

Meet at the Squam Lake Association Parking Lot at Piper Cove

Gather at 10:45 for an 11:00AM launch.

There is a parking/launch fee of $5 at this location.
Unload boats and pay fee at the shed down by the boat launch, then park in the lot up the hill next to the Squam Lakes Assoc. office

The Squam Lake chart can be purchased inside at the office, This is a unique chart, created by Bradford Washburn, a famous mountaineer, amateur cartographer, and long time president of the Museum of Science, who lived on Squam Lake. I'll have a few duplicates, but this chart is invaluable for anyone planning future paddles on Squam Lake.
Please RSVP ("I'm attending") in the calendar posting
