Vistas from high points across the region if you're willing to climb. Rating Easy to Moderate. Day One. Get to EP16 off of the Echo Trail early. The initial portage is long, but well worn and smooth, sloping gently downgrade to the launch area. Load your canoe and head North. You'll be paddling with the slight current on this narrow winding river. The water is clear and make sure to tell the bowperson to watch for looming rocks!

A couple of guys from our group paddled over to Little Trout one rainy day and just got one nice laker. I've read that there is a good population of lakers in that lake though. I've done the portage from Little Trout to Misquah, which is a killer. It goes up and down a few times and is really buddy in the summer.
