5-day look - February 23-27
« on: January 03, 2019, 09:40:25 am »
Hi guys,

I have 5 days booked for a trip - would love to hear possible suggestions. Here's what I'm looking for:

1) 30-50km loop (planning 5-15km/day)
2) Within 6 hours drive from London.

Possible thoughts:
  • Algonquin - off Hwy 60 - maybe Sunday Lake trail, or Minnesing trail. I've done both in the past, so these are a back-up.
  • Algonquin - Access 1 - last year we tried to get into North Tea Lake - couldn't go along the Amable du Fond river (not frozen), so we trekked along the crown land just east of Kmog Lake. Base camped out of Wet Lake. Another group made it by using the dog sled trail, but I had no place to park (active logging) and apparently the portages were a real pig. I wonder if a good access route may be along north end of Kmog...
  • Kawartha Provincial Park. Maybe Anstruther access point to Serpentine/Rock lake? Those portages though....
  • Temagami? Any suggestions (maybe the south end?)
  • Crown land - ??

In kawartha from long lake to cox has fairly level portages. you can circle back by going south through triangle lake.  Portages on the back end are not as flat.

Queen Elizabeth II wildlands has decently flat portages as well and can be used like crown land.
