Entry Point:Seagull Lake Exit Point:Saganaga Lake (J)
Number of Days:
Followed the Adams Knife Loop described in the Boundary Waters Book. Entered Seagull lake and ended at American Point in Saganaga Lake where we were picked-up. We were out for 10 days. The book said it could be done in 7 days but we made it a 10 day trip because we are old (but young at heart) and had our dog with us. We spent 2 nights at our last campsite. Our total mileage includes water and portages was 83.37 miles. We can never do single portages, so this mileage accounts for double portages. I have the GPS. route; if you are interested, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
