I love this loop. I paddle it once or twice a year as a day trip adding Long, Burntside, and Everette to complete the loop.. Also ski it when a good crust for skate skiing forms. It is a nice stretch of water. That campsite on Tee is sweet.

OneMatch goes solo.....Can He start a fire with one match???
Not really sure????? I think he can!

Great little report Jerry.

Thanks for coming along:

And thanks for taking us, Jerry. It looks pretty nice. I'll bet there are plenty of places like that in the SNF outside of the BW that don't see much use.

Looks beautiful. Always good to hear about places to paddle without a permit. Glad to see you got out on a short solo in between gigs!

Very timely report Jerry. By coincidence, due to knee surgery and a broken leg this year, I am spending my northcountry trip at a Fenske Resort cabin, doing day trips in the same area covered by your trip. Sounds like I have some choice exploring to do.

Thanks for the report and photos OneMatch! I really enjoyed them. I went around that route for the first time last February on an Arctic Cat. I was also impressed with the remoteness and scenery. I hope to paddle it someday soon.

Thanks Jerry. I didn't know.

Thanks for sharing your discovery Jerry. I have often wondered about the paddling opportunities offered in the SNF. Your report confirms it can provide some nice canoe camping.

thanks, Jerry. that area looks really pretty and easily accessible for short trips.

Nice report, Jerry. I love that route. I think that despite the few cabins and possible automotive noise in the distance, in many ways it offers even more solitude than much of the BW. Certainly it has many fewer people on it than the Numbered Lakes or Ensign! Glad you got to enjoy it.

Nice report. Beautiful falls. I've wondered what it would be like going to areas outside the BW. Might be the thing to do on occasion.
