I've been hiking this trail for several years during the summer and fall months. The mosquitoes can be brutal in July although a brisk westerly wind helped one year. Late September and early October allow for beautiful fall color and no bugs! The old growth forest is amazing and the views of the lake are wonderful. Loons and bald eagles can be seen during the summer.

My first trip here is what got me hooked on wilderness camping. Both the canoe camping and hiking into a campsite were well worth the minimal effort. The old growth forest is stunning, and it is hard to beat paddling by a loon on a silent clear lake while passing over a big old downed tree resting on the floor of the lake.

Extremely beautiful and very wild. Expect to witness quite a lot of wildlife regardless of your activities. Great bird watching, lots of porcupines, I even encountered a few wolves on occasion. On that note, keep your dogs on a leash-for their safety! If you need a place to stay and camping is not an option, check out Wilderness Bay Resort nearby (relatively).

Canoe-portage-fishing all excellent. I drive 3.5 hours at least twice a year to experience this place. Wilderness is beautiful. Highly recommend checking with Bob @ Sylvania Outfitters. Very knowledgeable about the entire region.
