Report


Entered Seagull lake and ended at American Point in Saganaga Lake where we were picked-up and shuttled to our exit point. Gunflint Northwoods Outfitters sent us the correct maps for our route, obtained all of our permits, outfitted us with a canoe and provided shuttle services from American Point. My husband, dog and I stayed at the outfitters before and after our trip; our experience with them was very positive.     We were out for 10 days. The book said it could be done in 7 days but we made it a 10 day trip. Although we are experienced we wanted to add extra time time because we are older (62) and we had our dog with us, plus we had to account for possible weather delays. We spent 2 nights at our last campsite. Our total mileage includes water trail and portages was 83.37 miles. We can never do single portages, so this mileage accounts for double portages. I have a mileage chart and GPS route; if you are interested, please contact me pwstaver2@aol.com.    Tripping suggestions: Use Thermal Cells, mosquito netting, bring binoculars and make sure you have your permits all in order - we were checked in the middle of nowhere. I plotted our route in Map Source using the book and BW maps. We had our maps as a backup but so glad we used the GPS as there are no signs posted to mark location of camp sites or portages.
