Route Description
Technical Guide: 

Stage at Rabbit River (just south of Black Lake on PR 314 in Nopiming Provincial Park. If you go when the water levels are high then you might not need to portage. We went August long in 2008 and the waters were considered to be higher than usual for the time. Regardless the river is very shallow and the portages were many. Apparently in the spring there are next to no portages. The sites are nice with lots of island sites. There are 3-4 sites within an hour of paddling. Cole lake has some very nice sites, but my favorite is the one on a point on a small lake (the 2nd one). It's a large double site with some small falls near it. Fishing was better in Cole though.
