Post subject:  West Mahzenazing River and Killarney/PEI loop

I'm planning a June trip and the West Mahzenazing seems like a tempting link to squeeze in some of Killarney and the south shore of Philip Edward Island in the same trip. There isn't much info online, and that which I've found is fairly old (one old thread on this forum, and this GPS track with a couple of notes: https://www.alltrails.com/explore/recor ... ey-loop--5 ).

Has anyone been on the West Mahzenazing recently or know anything about this route? Google maps makes it look fairly navigable without a lot of hassle but you can only see so much detail and it certainly doesn't show water depth. :) Jeff's/Unlostify note a 700m+ portage, but otherwise I haven't found much info.

Second to that, any thoughts on this route starting and ending at George Lake? OSA > Three Narrows > Kikakise > Point Grondine Park (near Collins Inlet) > South PEI > South PEI. (We're very experienced Georgian Bay paddlers so no warnings about wind/waves please.)

Re: Mahzenazing River. You might get in touch with the folks at Point Grondine Park. Check out their website for more info -

The G'Bay shore of Philip Edward Island and the many other islands makes for a great paddle - Georgian Bay eye candy at its very best! The inside passage is quite ho-hum in comparison though you do get to take a look at the Collins Inlet pictographs. See this post of mine for a bit more info on paddling around PEI

Hah, that may have been the first search result I found (and saved in my planning notes) when looking at PEI recently. Very helpful, thank you!

PERFECT! I couldn't have asked for more info than a video, and this certainly makes a downstream trip in spring or early summer seem do-able.
