Paddling Guide to the Grand Traverse Region
Author Last Post
The Paddling Guide to the Grand Traverse Region was written by members of the TAPC.  It details access points at 52 lakes and ponds that our members like to paddle in the Grand Traverse Region.  It is available at Horizon Books for $6.95.  If buying it there is inconvenient, we have two other options for you.  If you are going to be on a trip either John Heiam or Lois Goldstein is on, and you let us know ahead of time, we can bring it on the trip and you can purchase it for only $5.00.  If that is inconvenient, we can mail you a copy if you email John (  your address, and send him a check for $7.00.
