Canoe carts are stored on the Jackson Lake Trail, 100 m down the trail. The carts are free for your use, but please take care of them. Maximum weight for the carts is 600 lbs or 270 kg. Carts can be left at Jackson Lake. There are carts at all portages, except where the distance is too short to require a cart.
The north arm of Jackson Lake can be shallow. As well, the creek from Kinnaird to Blackett is shallow in places. Just before Blackett Lake you must portage over a beaver dam

the link www.laclabicheregion.ab.ca/Canoe.htm that you have listed is wrong.

The new link should be http://www.laclabicheregion.ab.ca/Canoe%20Curcuit.htm

If you could please change that as soon as possible, that would be greatly appreciate.
