We are planning a trip with our 9 yr old. This is his first time going to the BWCA. He loves the outdoors. Mom and Dad go every year. How long of a paddle is it to get to Pipestone BAy? And, would this be too much for the 9 yr old?
From Fall L. landing to Pipestone Bay should be about 3 hours, depending on how fast you move along (there are some easy side trails to see the falls, and Newton Lake is a nice meander). Great intro. trip- flat easy portages. If keeping away from motor traffic is an issue for you, consider camping on the east side of the lake.
