La Vase Portages paddlers participate in Heritage Canoe Day. The event showcases the historic route from Trout Lake to Lake Nipissing.
It is far from a leisurely paddle along the river with numerous portages that depend on the day's water levels.The longest portage this year was 1400 meters. The trip takes aboutsix hours and paddlers/portagers are treated to a shore lunch at BillyBob's Chip Stand to bring a satisfying end to a hard day on the watertrail.
The La Vase Portages are back in the news lately with the proposeddevelopment of an aggregate extraction business once again threateningthe historic route. A letter from Chair, John McNutt can be viewed atwww.lavaseportages.com.
