This was definitely a good hike! We planned to do it in 5 days but got it done in 3. We had amazing weather the whole trip so it made the trip so much more enjoyable. Id suggest taking several trips when portaging and hiking gear in between lakes. It might not be as fast at first but will be better in the long run. Dont bother bringing a dolly for your canoe or kayak...they are pretty much useless. Despite the great weather bugs were still a huge problem. Make sure to bring lots of calamine and maybe even a bug suit! Overall it was a great trip and Id definitely do it again!
