I'm trying to squeeze one last weekend paddle in this season early September and I've been quite intrigued about visiting the pictographs on the Manigotagan on what appears to be the western edge of Long Lake.

Was considering attempting it as a day trip but the distance is looking to be just a bit to far and may turn into an overnight (also factoring in I'm driving from the city).

Has anyone ever paddled Long Lake out and back return from the put in on 304 near the lodge? Is it an enjoyable paddle? Does anyone have a rough idea on the paddle time cross the lake? Not much information I can find other than details on the 4-5 day trip down the whole river.

Cheers!

Did you measure the distance?
Would you try to make it a loop or circular circuit by following one shoreline there and the other back (north and south)?
Would it be quicker to access that Western part of Long Lake from Quesnel Lake?

Yeah it looks like 8.5km each way, so around 17 return with 1 or 2 extra if I return on the south shore.

After you mentioned it I did check coming down from Quesnel, similar distance but the portages would probably make it slower.
