Kingston to Cedar Island Professional Review and Guide
"This simple and short day paddle is especially fine in the morning or evening when the light hits the walls and towers of Fort Henry on the hill across the water from Cedar Island. The island, part of the St. Lawrence Islands National Park, has picnic areas, short trails, and even camping available.
The paddle also starts out on the Cataraqui River, which is part of the Rideau Canal System, leading from Kingston to Ottawa. Fort Henry guards the entrance to the Rideau Canal, and old guard towers line the Kingston waterfront, a legacy of the War of 1812. Cedar Island has one of these round towers on its western end, a short walk away from the docks."
