LRCT Guided Hikes & Paddles

Lake Wicwas Guided Paddle

Friday, June 18th, 2021

Join us Friday, June 18th at 8:30am for a scenic guided paddle on Lake Wicwas in Meredith. LRCT Guide, Scott Powell and LRCT Land and Stewardship Director, Dave Mallard will lead participants touring the eastern shore and center of the lake, viewing a number of properties conserved by LRCT and other organizations.

Lake Wicwas covers 328-acres bordered by forested conservation lands, marshes and residences. The lake and its shores provides a rich habitat for various species. During the paddle, participants will explore the shoreline of LRCT’s Roger W. Harris Natural Area and Roger W. Harris Natural Area Conservation Easement, totaling approximately 61 acres with 3,600 feet of pristine shoreline, the Emmons-Cohen property, Smith Island, and the Marion Family Trust Preserve totaling about 35 acres with nearly one mile of shoreline. Finally, we will enjoy the view west across the lake to the 700 acre Hamlin/Eames Forests conserved by the Town of Meredith, as well as the Kahn and Smyth properties protected by easements held by LRCT and the town of Meredith.

The round trip distance of this paddle will be approximately 4 miles. The level of difficulty is moderate, but please keep in mind that weather conditions on that day may affect the difficulty.

Participants will need to bring their own kayak and life jacket. Registration for this program is required and will be limited to 10 participants.
