Surrounded by wilderness, East Inlet provides visitors a sense of solitude. The area attracts interesting wildlife, including great blue herons, loons, beavers and moose, who come to graze on the vegetation along the shoreline.
For anyone who enjoys paddling and wildlife viewing, East Inlet does not disappoint. We paddled East Inlet for nearly two hours, taking our time to explore its scenic, wooded shoreline. While we didn’t spot a moose, we saw ducks and several tall great blue herons, including four standing in a single tree. We also got an up-close view of a beautiful black-and-white-speckled loon that seemed unbothered as we paddled by. And soon after our trip, my kids were already talking about returning to East Inlet with hopes of finally spotting a moose.
