Greenstone Wilderness Trails

Minimize

GREENSTONE, Ontario –  November 4, 2012 ----   Greenstone Wilderness Trails has opened up the lower Kapikotongwa Kapikotongwa RiverRiver for recreational canoe travel.  This local non-profit corporation recently hired a consultant and his team to clear and document portages from the bridge on the Ogoki Road to Terrier Lake. The Municipality of Greenstone is located north east of Thunder Bay.

 This project was undertaken with the support of an LIC grant from Greenstone Economic Development Corporation/FedNor Canada and funding from Geraldton Community Forest Inc.

 The lower Kapikotongwa, east of Stewart Lake, had not been canoed for at least a decade.  Blowdown and forest fire burns had pretty well eliminated the trails around rapids.  Just before Tennant Lake, a series of rapids contributes to thrilling whitewater experiences as well as terrific fishing.

 
 Greenstone Wilderness Trails also commissioned a canoe route description, a circle route embracing Marshall Lake, Kapitikotongwa River, Terrier Lake, and Meta Lake.  Canoeists may start and end expeditions from the same point on the Ogoki Road.

The canoe route guide will be readily available online after GWT launches its new website.  Meanwhile, hard copies are available through GWT.
