Nitinat Triangle Kayaking and Canoeing

The Nitinat Triangle is located west of Nitinat Lake in an area of old-growth forest. The paddling route circuits through Nitinat Lake, Hobiton Lake, and Tsusiat Lake. Kayaking and canoeing in the Triangle area may take 4 or 5 days, although the route contains less than 17 km (10.5 miles) of paddling water. Kayaking and canoeing near Nitinat Lake are quite formidable. Paddlers should encounter muddy locations.
Knob Point Recreation Site, located on the northwestern shore of Nitinat Lake and primed with campsite facilities, is the best place to start paddling. The path to Hobiton Lake is overland because the Hobiton River is a salmon spawning stream.
Consequently, the handling of canoes through this channel is not permitted. There is a 1.6 km (0.9 miles) portage between Hobiton Lake and Tsusiat Lake. The paddling route ends at Nitinat Narrows, which can be passed either by the ocean paddling or by a 7-km (4.3 miles) trail.
