Trip Overview

I parked at the fish and game boat access on Berlin Pond Road. The access was decent. It's a pretty small parking area but big enough for my small pickup. The put in location was grassy with a small opening in the bushes to get to the water. That all was fine. The issue was that I was only able to paddle about a half mile before hitting a wall of bushes that completely blocked access to the main reservoir. I attempted to get through the growth in several locations but every time I came to a dead end. I could have possibly gotten out of my kayak and dragged it through the bushes, but I decided not to do that. I believe the rest of the shoreline is private property so I'm not sure if ther is any way to access the main body of the reservoir at this point in time.

Conditions

Very limited open water.
