For some reason when I seen this photo the portage from Whiskey Jack to Robinson instantly came to mind?

Neither Robinson, Pinetree, nor Hilliard...

...Hilliard is closest.

Hint: Given its name, you would expect its waters to flow in a certain way, and yet they don't.

Re: Where in Algonquin #288

Not Whatnot, Westward, Louisa.

My hint was not so great, I guess...so a bit more explicit: It's not the source of the river with the same name! It's not even in the same watershed!

I might be wrong about that, but I checked a few maps and was surprised.

Re: Where in Algonquin #288

Not Madawaska. You’re on the right track, though.

I think you got it. From Big Porc?

Re: Where in Algonquin #288

Yep. It is Bonnechere Lake as you approach from Big Porcupine.
Bonnechere Lake is not the source of the Bonnechere River. I found that surprising. I think this lake is in the Madawaska River watershed. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong.

Shawn D....yer up!
