Tahkenitch Lake Tour June 2015

  • Post category:Tour Blog

Paddling on the coastal lakes can be a windy affair.  Usually the wind speed pick up as the day warms up. So an early start is usually the best idea.  Tahkenitch Lake is a great location to paddle because it has many “fingers” that create a variety of sheltered paddling options. Old railroad trestles are interesting to check out. It’s name according to Wikipedia means “having arms running out like a crab”.
