I did basically this exact same trip a few years back, including probably the same campsites. This was Memorial Day weekend, and we pulled 200+ ticks off my dog. We had permethrin treated clothes on and that helped a great deal. Having that many ticks on you is a really gross feeling.

The spring ticks on that trail are legendary!

You made good time, it is a fun trail and a beautiful lake to hike around.

I did this hike last year, but in the other direction, and we stayed at different campsites. It’s a good one!

Was the bridge back up on the Parent/Disappointment portage, or did you have to go through the water? The bridge was out last year so we had to go through knee deep fast moving water.
