Route 13 – Paradise Lake
This lake is part of the Nova Scotia Power Nictaux Development, and its water levels fluctuate
dramatically with the demands of power generation. It is, however, a beautiful lake dotted with innumerable
islands of varying size that can be explored. The shoreline is generally rocky, but offers many opportunities for
lunch and rest stops. Sandy beaches are rare. Waterfowl are numerous in and around the lake, and hawks
can be commonly sighted. Winds, even moderate, are of concern on this lake due to its relatively large size,
shallow depth, and open areas without natural wind breaks. Caution and attention to weather conditions must
be exercised on this lake.
