Special Comments: 

A very picturesque route just right for a long weekend trip. For less agressive travel take 4 to 5 days.

Considerable portaging is involved. All portages are very easy but there are two over 1000m.

With daily portaging of over 1000m you are guaranteed quiet remoteness.

All sheltered waters except Kioshkokwi Lake which can have sizable waves in strong winds.

The portage from Mink to Club is on far right side at the end of Mink. The start of the portage is 100m up the creek.

Portage from Club to Waterclear is actually 2. 100m plus 240m divided by 10m of water.

Pulled a rookie and forgot the tent in the car. Figured it out after the first portage. Luckily we had a tarp so we ended up making out own shelter. Rainy weather forced us to paddle this one in two days, one night.
