Route Rec: Voyageurs Black Bay to Kabetogama

How to Portage: Carrying Your Gear

Crucial to consider when planning any canoe trip are the portages you’ll encounter and what your team will be able (and willing) to tackle. If your route crosses between lakes, over waterfalls, or around rapids, you should expect to hit the shore and hoist your gear onto your shoulders. Portaging can be a welcome challenge for a lot of canoe trippers, as well as break from paddling to stretch stiff legs. Part of the joy of wilderness tripping, especially with a team, is seeing how folks rise to challenges and find emotional and physical strengths to achieve more than previously thought possible. Don’t plan your route to avoid portages–you would be missing out. To portage well, there are some nuanced tips we encourage you to consider: Length Terrain Breaks Loading and unloading boats, efficiently Clothing And of course, history. Break: The Grand Portage.

Route Rec: Quetico's French Lake to Beaverhouse

We heard you when you requested guidance planning routes in our Twitter poll, so episode six covers a favorite of mine: French Lake to Beaverhouse lake in Quetico Provincial Park. For more about visiting the Quetico, its history and personality, check out our third episode. The route in a nutshell: 7 day trip 6 lakes 50 mi or 80 km 3 portages 260 rods - the longest portage, betweenPickerel and McAlpine. Skinny lakes and large lakes, winding narrows and shallow creek, long, low portage and short steep portage, and plenty of beautiful campsites. Join us for A Look Back, our break segmentdescribing the pictographs that can be found in canoe country and along this route in Quetico Lake. What are pictographs? Pictographs are pictures or symbols that signify a word. In this backcountry, the pictographs have a red ochre hue and depict canoe travelers, moose, bear, birds, fish, and more of the common surroundings.
