This website is provided as a community service. Paddling / portage routes entails certain potential dangers. We describe how to get to the waterways, suggested launch / landing sites, and places you may wish to visit.  We urge respect for the wildlife and responsible paddling practices. However, you need to be prepared for anything and everything that nature and people can do to you. You bear responsibility for your actions and their consequences, not us. That said, prepare well and then get out there to explore and enjoy!
