My younger son and I set out for one of our last kayaking trips of the year on Plymouth Pond. We explored the west side, which required that we paddle under the Moosehead Trail Highway bridge while ducking due to the low clearance.
We had hoped to reach Round Pond to the south; however soon the river connecting the two became choked with lily pads and we felt it would be harmful to the plants to continue further.
The section of the lake that we explore was shallow, with the bottom covered by plant life. We saw a number of fish and turtles, and at one point spotted a great blue heron catching a fish.
Here is a map of our trip.
