Route feedback

Thank you for the info from my last post. I think I have narrowed the route down to three, however, I think route 2 and route 3 are the best options (route 1 is a little far to do in 2 nights). For route 3, if North Tea gets to choppy, I figure worst case we can end early for the day, or re-evaluate our route a couple days out once we know the weather.

The second day for route 2 seems a little short in my opinion. And would appreciate any insight on lengthening it. Although we do not want a full day back to the access point on the last day.

Anyways I would greatly appreciate any insight you all have as well as any campsite recommendations (maybe with good fishing), and promise to stop bugging you all shortly.

Re: Route feedback

Two of the route options look pretty strenuous for 2 nights, the one camping on Manitou and the one through Three Mile. The former has a lot of portaging plus some windy lakes, and the latter just has a bit more of the windy lakes.

If you do choose one of those routes, I would recommend the campsites I stayed at, they were both really great campsites: http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtopic.php?f=108&t=44357&start=0

... the island one on Manitou would have some good fishing (we didn't fish, but based on the boat I mentioned in the trip report), but the one on Three Mile wouldn't be a great fishing site.

If you choose the 3rd, easier route, I wouldn't be much help since I've never been to those lakes.

Re: Route feedback

Thanks for the insight trippythings. The wind was my biggest concern. We have done similar routes in terms of length before but not on lakes so large. I actually saw your post in my research and those campsites look amazing, especially the island one. May have to build a route around camping there as option 1 (camping on Manitou) is basically off the table at this point.

Re: Route feedback

I am not privy on what routes 1, 2 and 3 are.  However, if you want to go to North Tea for a few days, another trip could be to North Tea and then on to Sisco Lake for one night (with a day trip to Lorne) and then back to Lost Dog Lake for a night, and then back out.  Or just go to Lost Dog with a side trip to Sisco and then out.  Travelling time to Lost Dog from Access #1 would be in the range of 5-6 hours.  Add another 1-2 hours to get to Sisco.

Tripping in Algonquin Park is not about seeking shelter from a storm, tripping in Algonquin Park is about dancing in the rain!
