Minesing Wetlands GeoPaddle IS FULL

Geo Paddling the Minesing Wetlands from Willow Creek Canoe Launch to Edenvale Conservation Area

Canoeing/ kayaking combined with geocaching during the trip.
I love paddling this area in the Spring time especially with the flooded forest portion.

Geocaching is/was my lifesaver throughout this Covid season and it give me positive feedback and mental satisfaction. I have explored up to 40 new rivers/ and lakes with geocaching and mostly solo paddling

Geocaching is game like treasure hunting, finding tupperware in the wilderness using satelittes.

it can be downloaded on your phone as an app, you can also check the https://geocaching.com website. It is for free, but for $35 a year you have more access to more options.

Water levels and scenery varies a lot from year to year. Having a GPS helps a lot. Plus now combining this with geocaching it will be way more interesting
