The eye in the sky looks like one property on the road, a farm, past the point of google street view stuff. I like the river but skipping the lake and portage would be nice.

I have now used the new parking area.

Travel down Limestone Lane. Fishog trail will end in the same place but has a locked gate blocking the area.

Along Limestone Lane there is an open gate with a sign indicating a fee of $10/day and an envelope drop off to place your money.

Near the end of the road there is a fork, going right is the boat launch going left is the parking area.

Call the park office at Balsam Lake, they will be able to tell you and give any updates on it.
If you are going now, wear orange, it is hunting season and there are active hunuting camps in the area.

Here is my solo trip done this year. Glad I got the chance to do it, many reasons that I am not going to discuss.

Thanks for the video, very nice.

When you mention in it that about half of the 1400 m portage can be paddled, is that the one between Scrabble Lake and Sheldon Lake?

I agree with you about the ravine being dangerous. I was once in solo from the north (at the south end of Sheldon), intending to go down into Scrabble, but after seeing the ravine I decided not to take the portage.

I was talking about the portage between Devil's Lake and Sheldon Lake. Ponds are next to the trail, In & Out are well established, if you know they are there you won't miss it.
