Paddle Lowthers Lake to the Big Pee Dee

Lets take advantage of the extended sunlight!

We will meet at Lowthers Lake at 1:30 and head out as soon as everyone is unloaded. No shuttle required. This time, we are going to the right. We will follow Lowthers Lake until it meets up with Herring Creek and then with the Big Pee Dee. This will be a total of 12 miles, there and back.

Because, this trip does not require a shuttle, you can join us for just the Lowthers Lake part. However, you would be responsible for reloading your kayak (on your own). Lowthers Lake is a ox-tail lake (shaped like an horse shoe and looks just like a river). The first section of Lowthers Lake is very wide and about four miles round trip. (Just a guess on the distance.)

Once we get to the end of Lowthers Lake, we will need to weave our way over, under, between and through the trees. There will be tight squeezes and we most like will have one portage (getting out of your kayak, see above picture).

I have not paddled this section before but from what I understand, Herring Creek has a unique untouched beauty and is full of wild life.

This paddle will take about 5 hours of paddle time so we need to start on time in order to finish before dark. I recommend a white light just in case. :)

You are required to have a PFD and whistle.

This is a meet up trip. You are responsible for your own safety. (I am responsible for my actions and you are responsible for your actions.)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
