Kayak Touring on Watson Mill Pond
Watson Mill Pond at George L. Smith State Park in Twin City in east central Georgia is ideal for touring by kayak. The three-mile long pond contains ten miles of paddling trails waiting to be explored. A photographer’s dream, every shot has beautiful scenery in the background and the paddlers have broad smiles on their faces. The colors of the cypress trees reflected on the mirror-like water make a great palette for shutterbugs in the fall. The historic covered bridge, circa 1880, is also quite photogenic. Other photo ops include a beaver lodge and fields of white water lilies. There’s a heron rookery that is active in the spring, as well as an osprey nest and many other species of waterfowl.
