Does any of my northern paddling brethren know of the condition of Seymour Lake Road into the northwestern bay of Toodee Lake? It's off Highway 129. Apparently there is a lodge called Whispering Winds on Seymour Lake that this road serves. Is it 4WD only?

Thanks,
Steve

Not familiar with it, but I'm sure the folks at the resort could tell you:

Thanks Dave. I did try them a few weeks back and had no luck. I'll try again tonight. Was just wondering if anyone in the area had any first-hand knowledge of the road conditions.

Hi Canoe Daddy,
So far the research I have done over the past few days would indicate that the road is passable past the whispering winds resort, with a 4x4. (spoke to a MNRO that did the trip two years ago) Looks like a group of us have decided to do this trip as our annual May trip this year. I have been searching the net and here for any info on portage maps trails etc to connect the lakes and have come up empty thus far. Only one other thread on here asking the same question you have and no answers from back in 2011, a few responses up to 2016, but zero info provided.

Guess I will maker my own map when the time comes. I did a fly in to Robb lake a few years back, trout fishing was incredible at 35 large Laker's and 10 Rainbows in 3 days, but having circled the lake many times in the power boat I did not see any indication of any portage routes into nor out of the lake.

If I find any more info on Toodee and the route I will let you know.

Hello,

Happy Tripping

Thanks again for all of the info. on that road, Captain. You might have saved me the bottom of my vehicle! Alas, this one will have to wait for another year.
