Trek Day 3

14.4 miles, Rougarou Island to Island Outpost

Program – Laissez les bon temps rouler!

Day 3’s paddle is the most diverse day of paddling, as the swamp landscape is constantly changing. From the large live oaks that surround Rougarou Island to the quintessential cypress swamps of Bayou Grand Gueule and south to the open waters of Lake Dauterive, Scouts will continuously be challenged by the various paddling environments.

At the end of the day Scouts will arrive at 24-acre Island Outpost in Lake Fausse Pointe. Here Scouts will spend two nights sleeping in rustic cabins and be given an opportunity to shower. After some much needed rest, the afternoon activities include swimming and standup paddle boarding.
