Driving from Middle Bay to Kalsin Bay

Written by: Posted on: December 31, 1969 at 7:00PMPosted in: Main Topic

After driving to Middle Bay, driving out to Kalsin Bay will not take as long. The bumpy roads will take the driver through the lush forest and often into some tree openings as far as the eyes can see. There will be great photo oportunities and lots of hills to go up and down. Not long after that, will be the American River, where there is Dolly Varden, Pink, Chum and Silver Salmon that any fisherman can catch. Right after the American River there will be a turn off for the trail to Saltry Cove. This would be the best place to take any ATV's, dirt bikes (or avid hikers) down and take the trail to the Saltry Cove, which is about 2 1/2 miles from the road system. There is a great fishing oportunity out there and there is even a lodge out there. Four miles down the road from the trail to Saltry Cove, will be Mayflower Beach. It is a great place to go beachcombing, picnicing and hiking. On the right will be Mayflower Lake where there will be Rainbow Trout available. A few miles after Mayflower Beach will be Kalsin Bay. After going down the largest hill, Kalsin Bay on the left side and there will also be restaurant called the "Kalsin Bay Inn" that has closed down. The beach will be accesible to the public so stopping there to take a quick breather, camp, or to take in the great scenery is available. If no one desires to step out of the vehicle, driving down the road is still a good option.
