The Paddle In The Park Contest is a province-wide hidden-treasure-style contest just for paddlers. Created by the folks at BADGER Paddles and their outdoorsy blogging friend, Preston Ciere of, the PITPC is all about getting more people out into nature and promoting how rewarding spending time in the wilderness can be. In fact, they have listed 9 + 1 reasons to spend time in nature everyday this summer.

So, to help advocate getting more people out into the backcountry, several well-known outdoor adventureres like Hap Wilson, Kevin Callan, Andrewa Wilson and Conor Mihell have all hidden BADGER canoe paddles along various portage trails at undisclosed locations throughout Ontario.

But the hidden paddle isn't the only prize, there are some great chances to win at home every time a paddle is claimed!

As PITPC partners, The Complete Paddler has been provided with an exclusive clue for the Cabin Falls EcoLodge canoe paddle hidden by Hap Wilson just for you. For more clues and information, be sure to visit the Paddle In the Park Website or follow them on Facebook or Twitter. Good Luck "Out There!"



Without further ado, here's your clue for the paddle hidden by Hap Wilson:




"Upon stairs of gold where the twin sisters meet,
Not far from the main trail, you must retreat."


Good Luck,

The Complete Paddler
