Jordan Lake - Seaforth Trip
Put In - The entrance to Seaforth is on US 64. Traveling west on US 64, go over the bridge on Jordan Lake. The Seaforth entrance is on the left. The brown signs point the way. There are 5 ramps and on the weekend are heavily used. On my return in the afternoon, I had to just take out on the beach to the left of the ramps as they were in such heavy use. $5 fee is charged to launch, ramps are open 8am to dusk.
Distance/Time - 11.4 miles/5 hours/2 MPH Avg
Above Average - based on the wind.
Trip Directions - Headed for the 64 bridge and then north following the left side of the lake. Parkers Creek campgrounds are on the left, so stopped at various places and hiked the camp roads. This area of the lake is very windy, only at night have I found this part of the lake calm.
Scenery - The weather was perfect, and after making it past the windy section of the lake, found a nice cove(skiers favorite also) which is beside an educational park. The educational park is located off of Big Woods Road, I have never really seen this park on any map, so it was nice to find. The park has many educational displays(even a helicopter) and trails. One trail goes all the way down the peninsula and back. A very nice shelter is also in the park. I also found an osprey nest within the park and it was active. Had lunch beside the nest and took some good pictures.
Hazards - Motor boats and wakes.
