Raquette Lake’s South Inlet is a beautiful paddle

July 20, 2014

South Inlet on Raquette Lake is an easy and beautiful paddle. The return in scenic beauty, calm flat water paddling, fishing, and natural wonders is very high for a short amount of work. The put-in is right off of Route 28, just east of the Raquette Lake hamlet and west of the Golden Beach Campground.

It’s about 1.5 miles to reach a series of small water falls that mark the end of navigable waters. The falls provide several lovely swimming pools and a beautiful spot to explore.

South Inlet meanders through the forever wild Forest Preserve. It’s a beautiful place that will remain so year after year. It’s high accessibility is a clear portrayal of the promise of the Forest Preserve.

These pictures tell the story of the trip on South Inlet.
