Bear Lake Canoe Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Even if seas and winds are high on nearby Florida Bay, they have little influence here, and navigation is easy. There are only two hazards to this trip—a chance of heavy mosquitoes as you wend through this mangrove “tunnel” and the possibility of extremely shallow water as you approach Bear Lake. You can prepare for the mosquitoes by bringing insect repellent (and bug suits, if necessary). If the water gets too shallow as you near Bear Lake, turn around and head back."
--Holly Genzen, Paddling the Everglades Wilderness Waterway (Menasha Ridge Press).
