Special Comments: 

Moderate difficulty, due to two long portages, steep and wet
Many decent campsites. Some worth staying at for two nights

Amazing route! A word of advice.... the portage from Gale to Ethelma lake is difficult to find. The path starts at the portage landing IMEADIATELY to the left through some tall grass. It took my sister and I the better part of a day to figure this out.
