Solo last year for one night. Went to Big Moose Lake. Long portage for one guy and a pup. Looking for another solo this year. Would like any suggestions for a not-to-hard or not too easy trip for 2 nights 3 days? Any suggestions? Want a quite place...not too popular. All suggestions welcome.

Fall Lake entry to Ella Hall? Dead end route, doubt you'd see anyone once you got off Fall Lake.

Little Gabbro entry to Turtle?

Lake 1 entry, 2-3-4- Hudson- Fire-Rifle and back out?

Sawbill to Cherokee to N/S Temperance to Fire Lakes loop might fit the bill out of EP38. Its a popular EP and route but depending on what days of the week and time of year its not bad. I did it in mid-September a couple years ago and only passed three groups on the portages.

The Lady Chain route from EP37 to EP38 can be done in 2 nights/ three days I think if you don’t mind paying for a shuttle back to your vehicle.

I have done short “out-and-back” solos out of EP25 to Knife Lake and EP30 to Insula as well. EP47 on the Gunflint side has a lot of short loops and out and back options too.

But all of these are popular EPs. If you go mid week vs. the weekends and/or after Labor Day you may get some solitude.

Baker Lake EP39 is a good one. Can go over to Sawbill or fire lakes if you want or head up toward Temperance lakes and Brule. Nice area, smaller water, portages aren't bad. I went in June 2 years ago and ran into a few people but not too bad.

Could also do EP25 to Wind to lakes beyond. Wind lake portage is busy but not too bad after that. It's also a nice lake to spend a day or so.

Good stuff! Thanks. This should help assist my research. I have 17 days off work. So week days in early Sept will be my goal.
Wont bother me if I dont see any one. Thats what its all about. Thanks for the input.

Three days is not long, so you might consider Little Isabella to Quadga or something similar.

The Little Indian Sioux north entry will get you up on LLC and allow you to duck into the smaller lakes in that "mitt". It may not be a loop but you will find it an easy and quick way to get away from the put-in with likely solitude. Just a thought.
