The Clyde River paddle trip starts in New Glassgow, PEI, and the sweet part of the deal is that you can start and or finish by visiting the PEI Preserves company for tea, scones, or what ever your heart fancies.

The put-in point is along a small little community park on the left side of the road. Because the River is tide sensitive, there are shallow spots, but not belly grazers. On a high tide, you can explore further behind the Preserves company.

This is a great autumn evening paddle when day light hours are your nemesis. We set out at 7pm and were taking kayaks out at just after 8 under headset lamp. I suggest two hours if you dawdled or wanted to explore past the Rustico Road bridge out into Rustico Bay.

Along the way, you'll find rural farms and fields, and the occasional home and cottage owners. The sounds of geese and the sights of fall colors will be in full by October. Another shire of Hobbitland.

Directions:

Heading out from Charlottetown, take Route 7, and turn left to get to New Glasgow. 25 minue drive.

Nice slow moving water and tons of bird life, in particular Bald Eagles. I've had the opportunity to paddle the River Clyde several times and it is a great route for windy days. Lunch at the PEI Preserve Company in New Glascow is a must if you paddle upriver from Rusticoville. Downside Pretty tame paddling. River is very slow moving (you can paddle upriver!) and it meanders quite a bit. More suited to a relaxing afternoon. Comment I've paddled this river both ways - from New Glascow to Rustico - and vice versa. I always enjoyed the route and there are some great historic sites in this area. Great food as well.
