Access to Put-In Information

The road to acces Brent is named Brent Rd. and is around 45 minutes of well maintained gravel road. Carefull with speed, lots of moose and lots of tricky curves. Sign-in is at the very beginnig of the road and closes at 4pm on weekdays, so make sure to arrive before it closes.

Arrived the nigh before the trip (sept 1st 2016) at Brent to stay the night at a Drop-Off camp. The campsite was clean with acces to drinkable water and Cedar Lk. Plenty of parking space.
