Dave, I know basically nothing about canoeing so please excuse a probably
dumb question!

When people are following the trail & arrive at a lake, would everybody use
the same route across the lake, or would you go straight across, while I
follow right round the shoreline?

Assuming different people use different routes, would this effect any
possible routing?
