Although I grew up on the Avalon I have never adventured into the reserve.Living next to a wilderness reserve here in ontario and being a avid kayaker Im planning to cross the reserve from peak pond to cape pond and all the various ponds such as bloody pond and three rivers inbetween.Has anyone here taken this route or have any siggestions about the interior of the park?water levels etc?I have a route planned and if anyone has been in there I would like to discuss the viability of the route and water levels rapids etc.

I have canoed the Cape Pond-Peak Pond route several times. There are many portages, the longest about 3/4 mile. The portages are mostly over bog and barrens, and are easily managed with a canoe. Might be more difficult with a kayak. The stretch of the Salmonier River the route follows is mostly shallow and rocky, requiring portages in my canvas canoe, but possibly negotiable by dragging and hauling in a royalex.
