Marshes of Petrie Island

Trip Overview

A few hours of paddling at Petrie Island. We left the dock at Oziles' Marina since my friend was renting. We headed east, around the peninsula, and then west, along the river, and under the northern extension of Trim Rd. Once thru the culvert, we headed towards the right and entered the marshy areas, where we saw countless turtles and herons. We spent about 2.5 hours on the water, in all.
