A favorite route offering many trip options and memorable things to see including;
World Class fishing for all four BWCA Species
Soaring granite hills and cliffs
Tumbling rapids and waterfalls
Wildlife, including Moose
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!
FS rides again!

Lots going on around me but no one will look at me.
Geez now I'm in the trunk and can't see anything.
Judging by the number of stops this trip leader must have forgot a lot of things.
Daylight! Packs and a canoe! This is it!
Why am I being strapped to the seat? Is this joker gonna sit on me, oh great I'm now a seat cousin. After a few hours of being sat on we made it to Nina Moose Lake. I think the paddler had beans for dinner.
I sleep under the canoe. Its raining off and on. Looks like they are packing up. Another lake maybe?
This time I get strapped to the thwart. much more comfortable way to ride.
